# How Does an Electric Dipole Move in the (In)Homogeneous E-Field?

If an electric dipole (e.g. a molecule with a positive and negative charge) is placed in a homogeneous electric field, then the negative experiences a force $$F_1$$ towards the positively charged plate - that is against the electric field. The positive charge experiences a force $$F_2$$ toward the negatively charged plate - along the electric field.
