    Abstract: In this paper, a model of a dipole with an atomic structure was considered, instead of the standard dipole model with point unlike charges and the Hertzian dipole model, which have significant drawbacks. It is shown that in the atomic dipole the Coulomb's law in the classical formulation does not work. Therefore, the Coulomb's law needs to be modif... Show More
