Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Ray on Saturday, November 3, 2012 at 10:17pm.

Imagine you are an astronaut who has landed on another planet and wants to determine the free-fall acceleration on that planet. In one of the experiments you decide to conduct, you use a pendulum 0.47 m long and find that the period of oscillation for this pendulum is 1.43 s. What is the acceleration due to gravity on that planet? (Enter the magnitude only.)

I know the formula to use is
T=2pi(L/g)^0.5(g) but I keep getting a wrong answer
