Three charges are arranged in an equilateral triangle with sides of 4 cm. The coordinates and corresponding charge values are as follows: +4q at (2,0); +2q at (2,0); q at (0,3.464). The elementary charge of an electron is given by q = 1.602 x 10^19 C.
Determine the torque that acts on the dipole and the work done to align the dipole at the center of the equilateral triangle. The dipole exhibits a dipole moment of p = 8 x 10^12 Cm and an orientation of (j, +i)
