# Solution - For a Point on the Axis of the Quadrupole, Obtain the Dependence of Potential On R For R/A >> 1 - Potential Energy in an External Field - Potential Energy of a Dipole in an External Field

ConceptPotential Energy in an External Field Potential Energy of a Dipole in an External Field

#### Question

Figure 2.34 shows a charge array known as an electric quadrupole. For a point on the axis of the quadrupole, obtain the dependence of potential on for r/>> 1, and contrast your results with that due to an electric dipole, and an electric monopole (i.e., a single charge).
