Moment of inertia respectively the axis

that passes through the end of the pendulum is

I = Io+mx^2 = mL^2/12 + mL^2/4 = mL^2/3.

T1 = sqrt(I/m•g•x) = sqrt( mL^2/3m•g•x)

=sqrt( L^2/3•g•x) = L/sqrt(3•g•x) =1 s.

L = sqrt(3•g•x),

α =ΔL/(L•ΔT),

ΔL = α •sqrt(3•g•x) • ΔT,

T2 = sqrt ((L+ ΔL)^2/3•g•x) =

=(L+ΔL)/ sqrt(3•g•x)=

= (L + α •sqrt(3•g•x) • ΔT)/ sqrt(3•g•x) =

= ( sqrt(3•g•x) + α •sqrt(3•g•x) • ΔT)/ sqrt(3•g•x)=

= 1+7.8•2.2•10^-5 = 1.000172 s.

b.

Δto= 0.000172 s.

Δt =0.000172•3600•24•14 = 208.0512 s.
