Homework Statement


Theres a rod and charge density ##λ## is a function of ##x##, so simply ##λ(x)=bx## and b is a constant.Find the dimension of ##b##
and Find the total charge If the lenght of rod is L

Homework Equations


Dimension Analysis equataion


The Attempt at a Solution


[/B]I am thinking like rod is 1 dimensional object so the dimension of b will be ##\frac {C} {m^2}## and total charge of rod will be,
## Q=\int_0^L λ(x) \, dx## and from that ##Q=\frac {bL^2} {2}##

Is this true ?
