small ring is threaded on an inextensible frictionless cord of length 2l.

The ends of the cord are fixed to a horizontal ceiling. In equilibrium, the

ring is at a depth h below the ceiling. Now the ring is pulled aside by a

small distance in the vertical plane containing the cord and released.

Find period of small oscillations of the ring. Acceleration of free fall is g.

When bigger pendulum will complete its one oscillation, the smaller one will complete [1+(1/4)] oscillation. so phase difference = 2π*(T/4)/T = π/2

2 comparable masses m_{1 }and m_{2 }r orbiting about their bodycenter o at distance r_{1} and r_{2} from their body center respectively with a common period T. the squar of time period ?

According to the diagram

Gm_{1}m_{2}/(r_{1}+r_{2})^{2} = m_{1}r_{1}ω^{2} = m_{2}r_{2}ω^{2}

compare first part with either second or third part of the given equation for getting ω^{2} then find T^{2}
