1) A dipole with a moment of 2.5 nC . m is oriented 33 degrees from a field with strength 3.6 MN/C.

What is the magnitude of the torque on the dipole? ____ mN . m

I know the equation T = qd x E sin (theta) where qd is the given dipole moment, but even with converting and plugging in I don't get the right answer.

2)How much work is required to rotate the dipole until it's antiparallel to the field?

again i tried plugging into -pEcos(theta) but my answer is wrong.

I am not quite sure why my approach isn't working or what I am doing wrong. I would greatly appreciate any help.
