inaccurate. Design a compensated clock pendulum out of two thin rods
of lengths Li and L2 (see ﬁg. on right), made from brass and steel, such
that the pendulum period is a constant 1.0 second, even when the
temperature changes. What are the lengths l21 and L2 needed? Which rod should be brass, and which steel? (as, = 1.2 x10'5 K“ ,ab, = 2.0 ><10‘5 K") (10 points)
