A mass m is at a distance a from one end of a uniform rod of length l and mass M. The gravitational force on the mass due to the rod is ------------

```
9 years ago

```							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)
approve if u like it
