- Homework Statement
- The electrostatic force repelling a charged particle from a long, straight, uniformly charged rod is given by

the equation F = 100 x ^ (-1) where x is the distance from the rod.

- Relevant Equations
- F = -(dU)/(dx)

I understand that you need to integrate f(x), and the negative of that is U(x).

But the last part of the problem says "Clearly state any assumptions you make."

And the answer is just the antiderivative of that f(x) without any constant from integrationHow does that make sense
