Problem 10. Consider a physical pendulum being pivoted about an axis through point P which isa distance s from its center of mass. You may assume that the moment of

inertia of the pendulum about its center of mass is IcM and its total mass is m. (a) Find the period of the pendulum. (b)Show that the period is a minimum when ms² = Icm-
