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/sec2 and do the arithmetic.
