    A simple pendulum consists of a small marble suspended from nail #1 by a cord whose length is 12 m. Nail #1 is 6 m below nail #1, so that as the pendulum swings, the cord is caught on nail #2 when the cord is vertical.
    The marble is pulled a small distance from center and released at rest.
    see ATTACHMENT for a diagram of the event.
    Find the total time t, in seconds, from the release of the marble until it returns to the release point.
