  Torque on an Electric Dipole
is the magnitude of the electric dipole moment.
The tendency of the electric field to align the dipole moment with itself is confirmed by the potential energy formula.
The potential energy is lowest when the dipole moment is aligned with the field and highest when the two are anti-aligned.

A dipole is a pair of electric charges or magnetic poles of equal magnitude but opposite polarity, separated by some (usually small) distance.
Dipoles can be characterized by their dipole moment, a vector quantity with a magnitude equal to the product of the charge or magnetic strength of one of the poles and the distance separating the two poles.
The direction of the dipole moment corresponds to the direction from the negative to the positive charge or from the south to the north pole.

If prion protein forms a oligomer, we might expect the dipole moment of each subunit to be antiparallel, causing partial cancellation of the net dipole moment, as Takashima observed for tetramers such as normal hemoglobin (Biophys J 64: 1550 1993).

The electron’s electric dipole moment is a measure of the average distance of charge from the electron’s centre of mass.
The dipole moment is parallel to the direction in which the electron spins because any other component of charge distribution would be averaged to zero by the motion of the spin.
The virtue of measuring the dipole moment of electrons in molecules rather than heavy atoms – which are currently used – is that they can generate far higher electric fields and therefore mask the unwanted magnetic effects.

 The permanent and induced magnetic dipole moment of the moon
The induced moment opposes the external field, implying the existence of a substantial lunar ionosphere with a permeability between 0.63 and 0.85.
We note that if the moon has a significantly large induced dipole moment, then the measurement of the permanent dipole moment may be affected, unless care is taken to give equal weight to data from both lobes of the geomagnetic tail in which the external field is oppositely directed.
The technique for the measurement of the induced dipole moment is identical to that for the permanent moment with two modifications.
