## Homework Statement

What length must the pendulum be changed to in order to show the correct time?

L=0.5m

After 12hours the clock is behind by 30minutes.

## Homework Equations

w=sqrt(g/L)

w=2

**πf**

## The Attempt at a Solution

I thought if I set the frequency equal to 1Hz and solved for length it would work.

2

**πf=sqrt(g/L)**

4

4

**π^2=g/L <-got rid of f since its equal to 1**

L=g/(4L=g/(4

**π^2)**

This unfortunately doesn't give the correct answer, I also tried making a ratio involving the time but that failed miserably.This unfortunately doesn't give the correct answer, I also tried making a ratio involving the time but that failed miserably.
