. The equipotential surface of an electric dipole is


A: A sphere whose centre coincides with the centre of the electric dipole

B: A plane surface inclined at an angle of 45^o with the axis of the electric dipole

C: A plane surface passing through the centre of the electric dipole and perpendicular to the axis of the electric dipole

D: Any plane surface parallel to the axis of the electric dipole

 

Best Answer

Explanation:

A plane surface passing through the centre of the electric dipole and perpendicular to the axis of the electric dipole is the equipotential surface of an electric dipole.

It is an imaginary surface around a point charged dipole having equal potential at every point as shown below:

equipotential

Final Answer:

Hence, option C is correct.
