force on mass m due to rod is equal to force on rod due to mass so   (action equals to reaction)

 i am calculating force on rod due to mass...

let rod is placed in x axis  such that its one end is at a distance x from origin ...mass m is placed at origin...

consider a element dx on rod at a distance x from origin...

mass of this element = dm = (M/L)dx

force on this element due to rod is dF = Gmdm/x2

           dF = Gm(M/L)dx/x2

 integrating both sides

       [F] lim0 to F = -GMm/L (1/x)          lim x to x+L

      F = GMm/x(x+L)
