1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A bar of lenght L is hanged by two cords(on the two edges of the bar) of lenght l in 1 pivot. What´s the frequency of small oscillations arond the stable position

2. Relevant equations
T=2$\pi$$\sqrt{\Theta/mgd}$

3. The attempt at a solution
I would try to solve it as a physics pendulum, but im not sure that is it a physics pendulum, because its hanging on two cords, and before this there was always only 1 cord.

Displace the bar by a small amount and compute the restoring force f, making the usual small-angle assumption(s) for the angle θ between the vertical and a line drawn from the c.m. to the pivot. Then solve f(θ) = ma(θ) as usual.

BTW the problem should also have given the lengths of the two supporting cords, or the distance from the bar's center to the pivot point.
