An electric dipole of dipole moment`vecp` consists of point charges +q and −q separated by a distance 2a apart. Deduce the expression for the electric field `vecE` due to the dipole at a distance x from the centre of the dipole on its axial line in terms of the dipole moment `vecp`. Hence show that in the limit x>> a, `vecE->2vecp"/"(4piepsilon_0x^3)`
