## Homework Statement

Consider a human leg to be a rod of uniform density pivoting about one end. What will the frequency of oscillation be for a leg with a length of 0.82 meters?

## Homework Equations

I believe we need the imagine the leg as a rod, so the moment of inertia would be = 1/3 m L2

## The Attempt at a Solution

so is the the pivot point at the hips and the whole leg is moving?

or just the shin is moving and the knee is the pivot point? if this it the case, then do be divide .82m by 2?
