V(x)=(-12/x)+(x^-12)

Find the equilibrium point and the frequency of small oscillations about that point.

I think I've found the equilibrium point 'a', but using the formula V'(a)=0, and i got the answer a=1.

However, I am completely stuck on finding the frequency, I've found the Lagrangian and hence the equation of motion, but then don't know what to do.

any help much appreciated! :)
