    Is 9.832 m/s^2 the value at the North Pole? You should have made that clear.

    Formulas to use are:

    Period: P = 2 pi sqrt(L/g)

    frequency: f = 1/P

    You do the numbers.

    My teacher didn't specify if 9.821 m/s^2 is the value of the North Pole. We don't have class this week because of Spring Break and it's due the morning we get back, so I can't ask him any questions. But I got C through F now, thank you!
