Find the length of a pendulum when it's period is
known
Use algebraic operations to "move" terms around the equation.
Starting with relationship 3.1
from Lab 4.
The final step is to write L on the left side of the equation.
Use this relationship as a "formula" to calculate the length of a
pendulum with a period of one second.
Let T = 1 sec, g = 980 cm/sec^{2} and do the
arithmetic.
