Question about ELectric field and electric potential

  1. Apr 15, 2008 #1
    I have a question.. between electric dipole in Y-axis... will the electric potential and electric field on some points along X-axis can be 0?? if this really can.... can you show me the calculation or prove to get this?? THX

    Why don't you try calculating it yourself?

    Because I don't know how... using what formula to count?... If I'm able to do it. Why I post and ask here....

    What is an electric dipole? Once you know what a dipole is, you can calculate the electric field using Coulomb's law. Consult your course text or lecture notes.
