(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

On the construction site for a new skyscraper, a uniform beam of steel is suspended from one end. If the beam swings back and forth with a period of 5.00 , what is its length?

I know the equation I need to use but I'm having trouble rearranging it to solve for Length (L).

2. Relevant equations

T=2pi*sqrt(L/g)*(sqrt2/3)

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried to rearrange the equation to solve for L and got this.

L=sqrt[g*(T/(2pi*sqrt(2/3)))]

any help would be great!
