OK...this must b simple...but I don't know how to go 'bout...it needs some integration for sure...I have also attached the diagram with it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Find the gravitation force of attraction between a particle of massmand a uniform slender rod of massMand lengthLfor the orientation given in the diagram.Thed istance between the particle and the rod isD.

The answer should come out to be-

[2GmM]/[D{L^2 + 4 D^2}^0.5]
