Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\LARGE \frac{2GM}{\sqrt{4L^2+d^2}}\] is what I got one term seems missing

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0again, seems like you didnt take the components right. E will be given by dE= 2dE1 sintheta where dE1=G(dm)/(d^2 + x^2) where dm=m/l dx sintheta=d/(d^2 + x^2) integrate with respect to x from 0 to l/2 dw:1361012228614:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol.. in such cases its better to take 2 diametrically opposite mass elements!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1361026132081:dw something liek this??.. cause if you consider two elements at a time, then the net field due to them becomes perpendicular to the rod.. and hence you can now add up all the elements.. else you couldn't add up directly.. cause, the fields would be in different directions!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ek se kyu nhi kr skte? in these kind of questions we always take 2 elements so that1 component cancel out and we are left with one. easier to integrate. how to do with one element? i dont know.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The mass is a distance of \[\LARGE \sqrt{L^2+\frac{d^2}{4}}\] from the rod

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1???? the mass is a distance \(\Large d\) from the rod. What is your method? I have not seen it in your posts.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's like a problem of electric field. You have to integrate Newton's law of universal gravitation in the same way as you would use Coulomb's law for charges.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so cant we do like this integrate from \[\LARGE \sqrt{L^2+\frac{d^2}{4}}\] to L/2 and multiply it by 2 :O

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This is why I told you to use angle as integration variable.
