  1. T=2PIsqrt(l/g)

    l/g= T^2/2PI

    g= l*2PI/l use 3.14159 for pi or better.

    A "seconds pendulum" is one that moves through its equilibrium position once each second. (The period of the pendulum is precisely 2.000 s.) The length of a seconds pendulum is 0.9928 m at Tokyo and 0.9943 m at Cambridge, England.
