Two Dipoles Walked Into A Bar

An electric dipole is a set of two point charges separated by a small distance, that are of the same magnitude but opposite signs. We have two dipoles, arranged as shown above. What force do the two dipoles experience?

Details and Assumptions:

  • Like charges repel, unlike charges attract.
  • The force between two charges becomes weaker as the distance between them increases.
