A molecule has its centre P of positive charge situated a distance of 2.8 × 10–10 m from its centre N of negative charge, as illustrated in Fig.
The molecule is situated in a uniform electric field of field strength 5.0 × 104 V m–1. The axis NP of the molecule is at an angle of 30° to this uniform applied electric field. The magnitude of the charge at P and at N is 1.6 × 10–19 C.
I need to draw the direction of the force on P and N due to the electric field. Is it correct force on P act on N and force of N act on P.
The next question asked to calculate Torgue, i get the result of perpendicular distance tan30 x Ef but in the answer sheet they use sin30 x Ef.
What am going wrong...
