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

A long thin rod lies along the x-axis from the origin to x=L, with L= 0.750 m. The mass per unit length, l (in kg/m) varies according to the equation l = l0 (1+1.110x2). The value of l0 is 0.500 kg/m and x is in meters.

2. Relevant equations

stated in equation

3. The attempt at a solution

I am lost on this question, i tried plugging the given numbers into the above equation, but my answer is not right(and tbh that seemed entirely to easy)

so i know .50*(1+1.110*.750^2) is not right, but other then that i am stuck, any help is greatly appreciated
