A uniform rod of length , pivoted at one end, is set into small oscillation in a vertical plane. Show that the period of oscillation is [tex]T=2\pi\sqrt{\frac{3L}{2g}}[/tex](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Shouldn't the period be [tex]

T = 2\pi\sqrt{\frac{L}{g}}

[/tex]regardless of the mass and dimension of the object?
