# Please explain the relation behind this?

• coulthardb
In summary, the conversation is discussing the relationship between electrical potential and electric fields, specifically how they change from a dipole to parallel dipoles. The equations in the pictures are used to demonstrate this relationship and provide information about the differences between potential and electric fields. The conversation also suggests using LaTeX to post mathematical equations.

Welcome to PF.

That's a pretty big ask. Didn't your instructor cover this in class? It's better if you post what you understand and what you don't understand. It's best to post math using LaTeX (see the "LaTeX Guide" link below the Edit window).

I don't even see the relation between this question and the screen shots. Does the word 'dipole' appear on pages 1 or 2 ?

What I do see on the screen shots is some lab instruction. Figure 2 on page 3 could well be one of the configurations mentioned under 'Data Analysis', so perhaps you can post your results for that configuration ? Equipotential contours seem to have been measured and field lines drawn.

## 1. What is the purpose of explaining the relation behind something?

Explaining the relation behind something helps to understand the cause and effect of a particular phenomenon or concept. It allows us to make connections and draw conclusions based on the evidence and data presented.

## 2. How do you determine the relation between two variables or concepts?

The relation between two variables or concepts can be determined by conducting experiments, analyzing data, and observing patterns and trends. It is also important to consider any external factors that may influence the relationship.

## 3. Can the relation between two things change over time?

Yes, the relation between two things can change over time. This can be due to various factors such as new information, changes in the environment, or the introduction of new variables.

## 4. Is there always a clear and direct relation between two variables or concepts?

No, there may not always be a clear and direct relation between two variables or concepts. Sometimes, the relationship may be indirect or complex, and it may require further analysis and research to understand it fully.

## 5. How does understanding the relation behind something benefit us?

Understanding the relation behind something can benefit us in many ways. It can help us make informed decisions, solve problems, and predict outcomes. It also allows us to expand our knowledge and make connections between different areas of study.
