# There exists a non-uniform electric field along x-axis as shown in the figure.The field increases at a uniform rate along +ve x-axis. a dipole is placed inside the field as shown. Which one of the following is correct for the dipole?Dipole will move along positive x-axis and will undergo a clockwise rotationDipole will move along negative x-axis and will undergo a clockwise rotationDipole will move along positive x-axis and will undergo an anticlockwise rotationDipole will move along negative x-axis and will undergo an anticlockwise rotation

A
Dipole will move along positive x-axis and will undergo an anticlockwise rotation
B
Dipole will move along negative x-axis and will undergo an anticlockwise rotation
C
Dipole will move along negative x-axis and will undergo a clockwise rotation
D
Dipole will move along positive x-axis and will undergo a clockwise rotation

#### the dipole is lapsed in a non-uniform electric field, therefor a force are well as couple acts on it. the force on the negative charge is more (F⋉E), and is directed along −ve x-axis. does, the dipole moves along -ve x-axis and rotets in an\quad anti clock wise direction.
