We put a 6 metres long thin rod with mass 0.3 kg on it, which does not slip. I would like to calculate the oscillating time. It is a part of a clock, so the oscillating time is probably 1 or 2 seconds, but I got around 5 seconds. Please help me find a mistake. relevant equation: I am used to write M (torque) and J (moment of inertia)

By oscillating time do you mean settling time? Also your images seem to not have uploaded properly.

duplicate post ... oscillating of a rod put on a cylinder ... seems that posters on physics forums agreed with your solution. Why the additional post here?
