Homework Statement


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).



Homework Equations


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


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!

Welcome to PF.

Why not simply square both sides of the original?

You know all the other values. Plug them in.
