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

A mercury is filled to a U-pipe so that the total length of the mercury is h (no figure given on the question). If the mercury column of one leg of the pipe is pushed then released, the mercury will oscillate with small amplitude. The angular frequency is

[tex]a. \sqrt{\frac{2g}{h}}[/tex]

[tex]b. \sqrt{\frac{g}{2h}}[/tex]

[tex]c. \sqrt{\frac{g}{h}}[/tex]

2. Relevant equations

Maybe a = -ω^{2}x

3. The attempt at a solution

Because there is no figure given, I think h is the height of the mercury column of both legs of the U-pipe, measured from the same point. But I don't know how to find the ω...
