A pendulum is constructed from a thin, rigid, and uniform rod with a small sphere attached to the end opposite the pivot. This arrangement is a good approximation to a simple pendulum (period = 5.97 s), because the mass of the sphere (lead) is much greater than the mass of the rod (aluminum). When the sphere is removed, the pendulum is no longer a simple pendulum, but is then a physical pendulum. What is the period of the physical pendulum?
i don't know the answer
