A student wants to use a L = 1.0 m stick as a pendulum. She plans to drill a small hole through the meter stick and suspend it from a smooth pin attached to the wall (Fig. 14-35). Where in the meter stick should she drill the hole to obtain the shortest possible period? Answer in number of meters from the upper end How short an oscillation period can she obtain with a meter stick in this way? http://www.webassign.net/gianpse3/14-35alt.gif My guess is 0 meter from the upper end will give the shortest period. Agree?
