I decided to take physics this year, my senior year in high school, and my teacher has decided he isn't going to explain things before he assigns us homework. Any and all help is appreciated.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The periodTof a simple pendulum is the amount of time required for it to undergo one complete oscillation. If the length of the pendulum isLand the acceleration of gravity isg, thenTis given by:

2.T= 2 (pi)L^{p}g^{q}

3.T= 2 (pi)L^{p}(L/T^{2})^{q}

Find the powers p and q required for dimensional consistency.
