Electric Dipole

“What happens when you have a separation of equal and opposite charge?”

The answer to this interesting little question is that you would end up with an electric dipole. And electric dipole is the separation of an equal amount of opposite charges. Dipoles are characterized by their dipole moment, which is a vector quantity. The dipole moment points from the negative to the positive charge.
