Hii Shubam

Let the separation of the mass m from rod is r

 

Let a small mass on the rod of length dx from the body (m) at a distance  x.

Then x can varry from  r to r + L

 

Now mass of this small body is M.dx/L

 

Now gravitation force = GM1.M2/r^2

 

so  G . m . M.dx /L(x)^2

 

Now we have to integrate it from r to r+L

 

F  =  GmM/L [ -1/x] from (r to r+L)

F = GmM / L  [ -1/r+L  + 1/r ]  = GmM/L  [ L/(r)(r+L) ]  = GmM/r(r+L)   ans

 

I hope ur question is solved now

With regards

Yagya
