## Homework Statement

A rod of length L and total charge Q is a distance D from a point charge q which lies along the

perpendicular bisector of the rod. Find the force of the rod on the point charge

## Homework Equations

E = ∫ dE

dq = λdx

F = qE

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm trying to integrate this does the second integral of j go to zero?

[tex](kQ/L) [i\hat D \int _0L dy/(D^2+y^2)^(3/2) -j\hat \int _0^L ydy/ (D^2+y^2)^(3/2)][/tex]

sorry for the equation I'm still learning to use latex
