[SOLVED] Electric Dipole 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I have an carbon atom polarized so it is essentially a physical dipole. I know the spacing between the "two charges" and I know what the charges are. I need to determine the potential difference across the polarized atom. 2. Relevant equations Not sure 3. The attempt at a solution I think that I need to determine the potential at both ends of the physical dipole and then find the difference between them. However, there are charges at the ends, so if I try to find the potential at the ends, it is infinity. I must be thinking about this wrong.
