(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

find:

[tex]\vec{p}[/tex] (dipole moment)

[tex]\itshape V(r,\theta)[/tex] (dipole potential)

of a spherical shell which has a charge area of [tex]\itshape \sigma= k cos \theta [/tex].

2. Relevant equations

[tex]\itshape \vec{p}= \int\int \vec{r} \sigma (r\stackrel{2}{} sin \theta d\theta d\phi)[/tex]

[tex]\itshape V(r, \theta )= \frac{\hat{R} \bullet \vec{p}}{4 \pi \epsilon R^{2}}[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I came up with 0 both times and i know that's wrong. plz help
