An electric dipole of dipole momentvecp 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)
