## At what point the electric potential of dipole is maximum and minimum?

When the **angle between the dipole moment and electric field is 180°** then the potential energy of electric dipole is maximum. (II). When the angle between the dipole moment and electric field is zero then the potential energy of electric dipole is minimum.

## At which point electric potential is maximum?

In the case of an equipotential surface, the electric field at every point is always normal (to the direction of the electric field (E)). Therefore, the potential at point B is more than C and B. So, the potential at points are VB>VC>VA. Hence, the electric potential **at point B** is maximum.

## At what position of an electric dipole in an electric field does it have I maximum and II minimum potential energy?

Potential energy of an electric dipole is **maximum when it makes 180 degree with electric field** and minimum when angle between them is zero degree .

## What is the minimum electrostatic potential energy of an electric dipole of moment p in a uniform electric field E?

When the angle between P and E is 0, then the potential energy of an electric dipole is minimum i.e. **(-PE)**.

## How do you find the maximum electric potential?

We are given the maximum electric field E between the plates and the distance d between them. We can use the equation **VAB=Ed** to calculate the maximum voltage. VAB=Ed.

## Is potential maximum at infinity?

Gravitational potential is maximum at **infinity**.

## What are the points at which electric potential of a dipole has maximum?

(i) At **axial points**, the electric potential of a diople has maximum positive or negative value.

## At what position of an electric dipole placed in an electrostatic field the potential energy is maximum and why?

The potential energy of the dipole is minimum when the dipole is parallel to the external electric field. Also, it is the maximum **when the dipole is anti-parallel to the external electric field**.

## What position of an electric dipole in a uniform electric field its potential energy is minimum?

A dipole is placed in a uniform electric field, its potential energy will be minimum **when the angle between its axis and field is Zero**.
