1. What happens to a charged particle in an electric field?

A charged particle accelerates, and the **kinetic energy increases** proportionately.

2. What happens to an accelerated charged particle’s potential energy?

The potential energy of a charged particle moving in an electric field decreases as its kinetic energy increases.

3. What is an electric dipole?

Two charges equal and opposite to each other and are separated by a constant distance is called an electric dipole.

4. What is a dipole moment?

The product of the distance between two opposite and equal charges and one of the charges is called the dipole moment. It is a vector quantity.

5. What is an equipotential surface?

The surface where all its points are in equal electrostatic potential is called an equipotential surface.
