Homework Help: Formula for finding the period of a pendulm?

  1. Mar 16, 2004 #1
    T = 2*pi * Sqrt 1/g

    Is this the proper formula for finding the period of a pendulm?


    The length = 0.9 meters
    g= 9.8m/s^2

    I come up with 1.90s..
    am I going in right direction?

    Yes that's correct,though I think you have a typo in your formula:

    [tex] T = 2\pi \sqrt{\frac{l}{g}} [/tex]
