Angular Frequency Problem

A uniform plank of mass 2.0kg and length 1.0m is pivoted at one end
in a horizontal plane. It is supported at the other end by a spring with
k = 1000 N/m . What is the angular frequency of small oscillations? It m
may interest you to know that the moment of inertia of a uniform rod about its end is 1/3*M(L^2) where M is the mass and L is the length.


Tried to find Angular frequency by using angular momentum but I didn't find a suitable way to do it. Any suggestions?

The answer is 39s^-1
 
use T=(2*3.14(I/mgr)^(1/2))
r is the distance from center of mass
Then inverse T to calculate the value of f.
