A uniform stick of length L = 2.2 m, width W = 9.0 cm, and mass M = 4.5 kg oscillates as a physical pendulum and pivots about point O as shown in the Figure. What is the period of the pendulum if x, the distance from the pivot point to the center of gravity of the pendulum, is equal to 0.68 m?

2. Relevant equations

T=2*pi*sqrt(L/g)

3. The attempt at a solution

I am stuck, i know 2*pi*sqrt((1.1+.68)/9.81) is not going to be right because the section of the stick above the pivot needs to be taken into account, im just not sure how.
