### What distinguish electric field intensity from electric potential stating the unit of each?

Electric Field Intensity also simply referred to as the Electric
Field is a vector quantity with the units (V/m) (Volts per meter)
Symbol: E (Boldface to represent a vector)
Electric Potential is a scalar quantity with units V (Volts).
Also sometimes referred to as Voltage when dealing with the
difference between two points. Symbol: V (non-bolded to represent a
scalar)
The relationship between the two is:
The Electric Field Intensity E is equal to the negative
of the gradient of V.

### An electric dipole placed with its axis inclined at an angle to the direction of a uniform electric field experiences?

It experiences a torque but no force. As the dipole is placed at an
angle to the direction of a uniform electric field it experiences
two opposite and equal forces which are not along the same line.
This develops a torque which aligns the dipole along the field. The
dipole does not experience any force as the two forces cancel each
other.
