**A meter stick swinging from one end oscillates with a frequency f0. What would be the frequency, in terms of f0 , if the bottom half of the stick were cut off?**

Based on a experiment we did in class with tuning forks the frequency should be twice as much if the length were reduced by half but when I enter that in for the answer it comes up as incorrect. Today in class we went over that a frequency remains the same when transferring between mediums but there is no transfer here, just a shortening of length so that shouldn't have any effect on it. I can't figure out where I am going wrong with this.
