(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A physical pendulum is constructed using a 4.4 kg object having a moment of inertia of 33.9 kg-m2 about its center of mass. The rotation (suspension) point is 276.69 cm from the center of mass. What is the period of this physical pendulum?

2. Relevant equations

T = 2pi sq rt (I/mgh)

3. The attempt at a solution

Every attempt at this problem yields T = 3.35s. I did a little research to make sure I was using the correct equation, but I didn't find anything to contradict what I'm using. Inertia is kg-m^2; m=4.4kg, g=9.81m/s^2, and h=2.7669m. Any help is appreciated.
