After landing on an unfamiliar planet, a space explorer constructs a simple pendulum of length 47.0 cm. She finds that the pendulum makes 97.0 complete swings in a time of 141 s .(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the value of g on this planet?

a complete swing is a cycle??? so the period would be 97/ 141 = 0.688??is this right?

i was thinking of using the formula frequency = (1/2pi)*sqrt(g/ L), and get g from there. I tried using the period i said before but it is not right. What am i doing wrong?
