Abstract. We study the classical behavior of an electric dipole in the presence of a uniform magnetic field. Using the

Lagrangian formulation, we obtain the equations of motion, whose solutions are represented in terms of Jacobi functions.

We obtain a relation between the

We also identify two constants of motion, namely, the energy E and a pseudomomentum C.

constants that allows us to suggest the existence of a type of bound states without turning points, which are called trapped

states. These results are consistent with and complementary to previous results.

Keywords: General Physics, Electric Dipole, Lagrangian formulation

In the present day, many specialists study the world at the molecular scale. Nanotechnology is slowly exploring

molecular rotors, and applications of this concept are extensive. Using electric fields, molecules can change in

orientation and/or remain controlled [1, 2, 3]. Molecular-level devices can be obtained from the conversion of energy

into controlled motion; nevertheless, it is difficult to repeat this process using a mechanical molecular motor, although

it is common in biological systems. For the time being, it is expected that the physical principles at the scale of

a molecular engine can be identified by applying rotor dynamics in two dimensions. These rotors are modeled as

electric dipoles in electric or magnetic fields. The primary goal of the present work is to describe the motion of a

classical electric dipole in the presence of an external magnetic field, perpendicular to the dipoles plane of motion.

This system has been approached from various perspective by several authors [4, 5, 6, 7]. However, the trajectory of

the center of mass and the conditions for the existence of trapped states in terms of the constants of motion have not

been fully studied. In this article, we describe in detail the solution of the equations of motion in the coordinates of the

relative motion and the center of mass, which we derive from the Lagrangian formulation of the problem. The relation

between the constants of motion, which permits the existence of trapped states, is established. These solutions could

significantly impact the future of the applications and construction to molecular motors, as they describe the overall

behavior of a dipole from a classical perspective.

In the present model [4], we consider two charges in the presence of a uniform magnetic field. The magnetic field is

obtained from a vector potential A, as follows B = A. We assign to the particle 1(2) the charge e1 e2 , the position

r1 (r2 ), the velocity r1 (r2 ) and the mass m1 (m2 )

wherer is the relative position and R is the position of the center of mass. Now, we consider a rigid dipole composed of

an internal coupling that holds the two charges together and ensures that the Coulomb interaction between the charges

is constant. Then, one of the particles carries charge +e, whereas the other carries charge e, and |r| = a is the fixed

length of the dipole. If we substitute finally we obtain the following function:

where = m1Mm2 is the reduced mass and M = m1 + m2 is the total mass of the dipole. The energy of the system can

The other constant of motion that appears from the analysis is called pseudomomentum [4, 6],

Now, if we restrict the motion of the particles to a plane perpendicular to e = eC eB , to constitute a complete

set of orthonormal vectors, namely, a basis. In the above basis r and R are represented in terms of which is the

By taking the time derivative of the previous equation and dismissing the trivial solution = 0, we obtain:

+ 2 sin = 0,

with 2 = a

(8)

where the time derivative is in terms of the dimensionless time . We emphasize that Eq.(8) coincides with the equation

of motion of a nonlinear pendulum whose general solution is [8]:

= 2 arcsin[sn( ( )| )]sgn(cn( ( )| ))

= 2sgn 0 kdn( ( )| )

dipole, respectively, and the sgn(x) function is defined as

{

sgn(x) =

(10)

1, x < 0

Furthermore, we must take into account some additional definitions; these are the Jacobi functions [9]

sn(x|k) =

cn(x|k) =

dn(x|k) =

sin(am(x|k))

cos(am(x|k))

(11)

and am(x|k) is the inverse of an incomplete elliptic function [9] of the first kind, with

am(x|k)

x=

1 k2 sin2

(12)

The set of equations (9) is valid for any value of the parameter and the value of this parameter classifies the motion

of the dipole into two possible states: if 1, the dipole has sufficient energy to rotate and, if > 1, the dipole

oscillates around equilibrium. For the latter case, it is suitable, from the numerical point of view, to reformulate the set

of equations (9) as a function of the parameter k, which takes values in accordance with 0 k 1:

= 2 arcsin[ksn( |k)]

= 2sgn 0 kcn( |k)

The angle and the angular velocity are periodic functions with the following period:

{

2 K( )/, 1

T=

4 K(k)/, > 1

(13)

(14)

The law of motion that satisfies the position of the center of mass can be found by integrating the Eq(6) , with the aid

of Eqs. (9) and (13). The solution of the Eq(6) for > 1 can be written as follows.

(15)

Equations (15) represent the general laws of motion for the position of the center of mass regardless whether the dipole

possesses enough energy to rotate, namely, for any value of .

Trapped states exhibit the property of having a mean velocity equal to zero[4, 7]. For the variable of the center of mass,

Eqs. (15) mean:

1 ( ) 10 = 0

2 ( ) 20 = 0

(16)

where = 2sgn 0 k( ) + 0 . The first equation of (16) is immediately satisfied because of the periodicity of Jacobi

functions. The second is satisfied only if

(17)

where E(x) is the complete elliptic integral of the second kind. The condition for the existence of trapped states is

included in Eq.(17). As concluded previously in [4], trapped states can only exist if 1, which is the same result as

in Eq.(17).

Case 1: 1 represents rotating dipoles Eq. (17) has nonnegative solutions if = 0, = 0. Eq. (16) represents a

trapped motion. In the spatial reference system centered on the initial position of the center of mass, the previous

equation is a curve that forms a sort of cardioid.

Case 2: > 1 the equation (17) may possess positive solutions if 0 k < kmax , kmax 0.9. By analyzing the equation

(17) in terms of k 0 and preserving the terms of the order k2 ; 1 k2 and Eqs.(15) can be converted in:

= 10 2

(18)

The aproximation for k 0 that leads to Eq (18) defines a Lissajous figure with = 2 centered in a suitable system

of reference. However, if we repeat the calculation numerically for higher values for k, surprisingly, we obtain a nearly

identical figure. As stated above, the orbit for all values of the parameter k are very similar. In order to show a graphical

example for functions obtained from the Eq.(18), we define the following normalized cordinates for the center of mass

1N =

2N =

max 2 20

(19)

FIGURE 1. The normalized path of the center of mass (of the dipole) for the initial conditions given by 0 = 0. Orbits for two

values of k are compared. The path for small k (namely, k = 0.01) is represented by a solid line, and the case k = 0.85 is represented

by red points. It is apparent that the two curves nearly coincide.

In summary, the present study supports and generalizes previous analyzes discussed in the literature, which can be

considered as particular cases of the present analysis. It is interesting to note that the system, under certain conditions,

can move against the sense of the pseudomomentum. As expected, the motion in the pseudomomentum sense is

possible too. Certainly, the present study of the behavior of the electric dipole in presence of a magnetic field is

classical. The behavior strongly depends on the initial conditions. If we slightly modify the initial conditions for the

system, we no longer obtain this special family of states. We think this is a relevant contribution that we expect to

follow studying by several perspectives. As said before, for the time being, it is expected that some physical principles

at the scale of a molecular engine can be identified by applying rotor modeled as electric dipoles in external magnetic

fields.
