When an electric dipole is placed in a uniform electric field making an angle with the direction of the field as shown in the figure. Force on charge $-q=-q\overrightarrow{E}$ (opposite to $\overrightarrow{E}$) Force on charge $+q=q\overrightarrow{E}$ (along $\overrightarrow{E}$) Thus, electric dipole is under the action of two equal and unlike ...

The electric field of a dipole extends to infinity in all direction, but it's strength falls faster than for a monopole ($1/r^3$) (also in all directions), so that it can be neglected at shorter ranges than for a monopole. Using the field line visualization this is not as easily apparent because of the axial symmetry of drawing, but it follows from ...
