## Homework Statement

A uniform meter stick is hung at its center from a thin wire. It is twisted and oscillates with a period of 5 s. The meter stick is then sawed off to a length of 0.76 m, rebalanced at its center, and set into oscillation.

With what period does it now oscillate?

## Homework Equations

T=2pi(sqrt(I/K))

I=(1/12)ML^2

## The Attempt at a Solution

I tried solving for m in terms of k and then plugging that into a new equation solving for T with the length being .76, but that didn't work. Any suggestions?

Thanks!
