Rod Pendulum

Note that the period is independent of the mass and radius of the rod.

A physical pendulum in the form of a uniform rod suspended by its end has period

For pendulum length L = cm and
acceleration of gravity g = m/s2
the pendulum period is T = s

compared to a period T = s for a simple pendulum.
