(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A rod of length 0.1m has a uniform linear charge density of 3C/m. Determine the Electric field at a point d=P located at a perpendicular distance 1m along a line of symmetry of the rod.

3. The attempt at a solution

I know i have to use super position and integrate but I don't think I'm using the right integration.

I was trying 2[tex]\lambda[/tex]L[tex]\oint[/tex][tex]\frac{ddl}{ (L^2 + d^2)^3/2}[/tex]
