Calculate the potential energy of the dipole-dipole interaction between 2 HF molecules oriented along the x axis in an XY coordinate plane whose area of positive charge is separated by 5.00 Angstroms from the area of negative charge of the adjacent molecule:
The solution is given as -1.47 X 10^-19 J
The question is taken in the example 2 of the above link. I tried following the steps and formula used. But the answer I obtained was different from the solution given. Any idea what went wrong?
