Find the period of the period

Find the length

I tried using the 2pi sqrt. L/g formula

I dont know why I got this huge number

**drwls**, Sunday, November 21, 2010 at 8:11pmThe period P is 3/120 = 1/40 minute = 1.5 seconds.

P = 2*pi*sqrt(L/g) = 1.5 s

sqrt(L/g) = 0.2387

L/g = 0.05699

L = 0.569 m

That doesn't seem very huge to me.
