A pendulum consists of a massless rigid rod with a mass at one end. The other end is pivoted on a frictionless pivot so that it can turn through a complete circle. The pendulum is inverted, so the mass is directly above the pivot point, and then released. The speed of the mass as it passes through the lowest point is 6.0 m/s. If the pendulum undergoes small amplitude oscillations at the bottom of the arc, what will be the frequency of the oscillations?

2. Relevant equations

Vmax=wA

F= 1/T

3. The attempt at a solution

I attempted to use Vmax to solve for w or A but neither w or A or given so im not sure how to work through this problem
