I•ε = M.

where I =mL^2 is the moment of inertia of material point.

m•L^2•(d2φ/dt2) = -m•g•L•sin φ.

d2φ/dt2 is the derivative of order two,

sin φ ≈φ,

d2φ/dt2 + (g/L) φ = 0.

The solution of this equation is

φ = φ(max) •cos(ω•t+α),

where ω = sqrt(g/L)

T =2π/ ω =2π•sqrt(l/g).

T = 2π•sqrt(1.11/9.81) = 2.114 s.
