Hello, I posted this a bit ago, but am not sure the suggested solution was correct.

Two physical pendulums (not simple pendulums) are made from meter sticks that are suspended from the ceiling at one end. The sticks are uniform and are identical in all respects, except that one is made of wood (mass = 0.17 kg) and the other of metal (mass = 0.85). They are set into oscillation and execute simple harmonic motion. Determine the period of (a) the wood pendulum and (b) the metal pendulum.

The answer is 1.64 s for both. Can someone show the steps to see how to get this?
