A uniform electric field of 300 N/C makes and angle of 25 degrees with the dipole moment of an electric dipole. If the torque exerted by the field has a magnitude of 2.5 x 10^-7 N*m, the dipole moment must be:

When the dipole moment of a dipole in a uniform electric field rotates to become more nearly aligned with the field:
the field does positive work and the potential energy decreases
The dipole moment of a dipole in a 300 N/C electric field is initially perpendicular to the field, but it rotates so it is in the same direction as the field. If the moment has a magnitude of 2 x 10^-9 C*m, the work done by the field is:

An electric dipole is oriented parallel to a uniform electric field. It is rotated to one of the five orientations shown below. Rank the final orientations according to the change in the potential energy of the dipole-field system, most negative to most positive.
