Dear manoj

let mass per unit length of rod is m

and take a strip of lenghth dx at a distance x from the pivoted end

tension in rod is due to centrifugal force in part of rod that is away from the point of interest

so for point at a distance L/4


T1  = limit  L/4 to L    (mdx)w2 x

     =15/32 mw2L2


For a point at 3L/4

T2  = limit  3L/4 to L    (mdx)w2 x

      =7/32 mw2L2


So  T1>T2
