1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A dipole is placed next to a sphere (see image), at a large distance what is E proportional to? 3. The attempt at a solution or lack thereof I'm having trouble figuring out what's happening in any variations of these. How does the dipole affect the sphere's charge layout? Scavenging through Griffith's but not been able to find this in there and am at quite a loss.
