(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The electric dipole moment of a CuSO4 molecule is 3.2 * 10^-32 (i.e. 10 raised to the power of -32)C-m. Find the separation between the copper and sulphate ions.

2. Relevant equations

Electric deipole moment = 2aq where 2a=separation between the two charges q and -q

3. The attempt at a solution

I am unable to proceed with the given data, because I need to find out the value of q. Please help me with some clues.The answer is 10^-3m. Thanks.
