Graph in Mathematica to solve d^2theta/dt^2 + g/lsin(theta)= 0

Show a graph of period vs. Theta not.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I am not very experienced with entering information into mathematica. I am aware that the manipulate plot functions are probably necessary for graphing them, however after watching a number of help videos on mathematica I have failed miserably.

For instance:

Solve[{(d^2 x)/dt^2 - gsin[x] == 0}, {x, g}] is one attempt, and I realize that I mistakenly put a - instead of + sign in.

I have tried using Solve, Plot, Integrate, Dsolve....

I am simply lost.

Could anybody help me with mathematica?

Thanks,
