33. Consider an infinitesimal segment of the rod, located between xand x + dx. It has length dxand contains charge dq = λdx = cx dx. Its distance from P1is d + xand the potential it creates at P1is dVdqdxcx dx=+=+141400ππεε. To find the total potential at P1, we integrate over the length of the rod and obtain 0009221222[ln()
