Homework Help: REAL QUICK question about how to solve for the period of a simple pendulum?

    REAL QUICK question about how to solve for the period of a simple pendulum???

    Number31.png

    For part a, I tried using the formula: T = 2π√(L/g)

    I did,

    T = 2π√(53.4/9.8)
    T = 2π√(5.44)
    T = 2π(2.33)
    T = 14.6 s

    But that's wrong... Help please?

    What are the units of the length and for g?
