Here, the mass of the rod is and the length is .
Let us take an element of length dx at a distance x from the center of the rod.
Mass of the element is
The element is at a distance d from the rod.
The horizontal components cancel out and the field is in the negative y direction given by
Substituting (2) in (1)
Which gives us
