Homework Equations





The Attempt at a Solution



I'm having some trouble getting started... How should I start to derive this result?

Should I focus on one dipole with respect to the point P and then proceed to the other?

Once I obtain the 2 results I can add them together to obtain my final E.

What should I be asking myself/thinking about?

Thanks again!

Thanks for the post, but as of right now I'm mainly focused on solving this problem specifically. I've been stuck on it for quite some time.
