Therefore, the magnetic or electric dipole moment is dimensionally represented as [M0 L1 T1 I1].

## What is the unit and dimension of electric dipole moment?

As we know that the current is the rate of change of charge w.r.t time. Now as we know that the unit of distance is meter so the dimension of distance is L. Hence the unit of dipole moment is **coulomb-meter and the dimension is [ATL] respectively**.

## What is the size of an electric dipole?

We understood that an electric dipole is an arrangement of equal and opposite charges. Since the two charges are separated by a **distance ‘2a’**, which is called the dipole length. The distance between the charge and the centre of the dipole is ‘a’.

## What is dimensional formula of moment?

The dimensional formula for the moment of force is **[M1L2T−2]**.

## What is SI unit of electric flux?

Electric flux has SI units of **volt metres (V m)**, or, equivalently, newton metres squared per coulomb (N m^{2} C^{−}^{1}).

## What is dipole SI unit?

A dipole is a pair of equal and opposite charges separated by a small distance. … The SI composite unit of electric dipole moment is **the ampere second meter**.

## What is dipole moment example?

Dipole moments tell us about **the charge separation in a molecule**. The larger the difference in electronegativities of bonded atoms, the larger the dipole moment. For example, NaCl has the highest dipole moment because it has an ionic bond (i.e. highest charge separation).

## What do you mean by electric dipole moment?

qd is defined as the electric dipole moment. Its magnitude indicates **the maximum torque exerted upon a given electric dipole** per unit value of the surrounding electric field in a vacuum. The electric dipole moment, a vector, is directed along the line from negative charge toward positive charge.

## What is electric dipole with diagram?

An electric dipole is a **pair of equal and opposite point charges -q and q**, separated by a distance 2a. The direction from q to -q is said to be the direction of the dipole. where p is the electric dipole moment pointing from the negative charge to the positive charge.
