Frequency of Oscillation

  1. Nov 10, 2011 #1
    A gibbon, hanging onto a horizontal tree branch with one arm, swings with a small amplitude. The gibbon's center of mass is 0.481 m from the branch and its rotational inertia divided by its mass is I/m = 0.256 m2. Estimate the frequency of oscillation.
