A pendulum is a mass connected to a light string or rod which is connected to the ceiling. The period is the amount of time it takes the bob (as the mass is called) to swing from one side to the other and back. It is given by
where T is in s, l is the length of the string or rod (in m), and g is the acceleration due to gravity (m/s2). (See Figure.)
If a pendulum is transported to the Moon, where the acceleration due to gravity is six times less than that here on Earth, how would the period of the pendulum change?
