1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Consider the following figure. For the electric dipole shown in the figure, express the magnitude of the resulting electric field as a function of the perpendicular distance x from the center of the dipole axis. (Use the following as necessary: k, q for the charges, x, and d.) 2. Relevant equations Et= E1 + E2 E = k|q|/r2 3. The attempt at a solution The x component of the electric fields will cancel out, leaving only the y-components. Adding the two vector fields in the y-direction: [k|q|/r2]sinθ + [k|q|/r2]sinθ = 2[k|q|/r2]sinθ r^2 = [d/2 + x^2]1/2 My final answer: 2[kq/[d2/4 + x2]1/2]sinθ This is not correct.
