1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A pendulum consists of a stick of length L and mass M that is pivoted about its center, and attached to a pair of springs of stiffness k. As shown in attached pic, the springs are symmetric about the pivot, and the distance between them is l. a) Find the natural angular frequency ω of this pendulum's small oscillation 2. Relevant equations I think, T = 2π(m/k)^(1/2) and ω = 2π/T but am not sure. 3. The attempt at a solution I can see how stored energy is being passed between the springs but am not sure how to setup the problem. Do I need to use COM/torque since mass is distributed throughout the stick? Thanks for your input.
