    I am looking for some help solving this differential equation problem.

    It involves a clock that has a adjustable length pendulum that is set to 30 cm. With this set up the clock loses 10 minutes a day. I need to find out at which length this clock will keep perfect time.

    I am stumped at where to start i guess. Any help would be great

    This sounds like a homework problem.
