A clock pendulum has a period of 1.222 seconds where g = 9.812 m/s^2.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. What is the new period of the pendulum when g = 9.797 m/s^2?

2. How many seconds will a clock using this pendulum lose in 24 hours?

For the first one, using 7 significant figures, the new period comes out to 1.222935 seconds. I'm not sure how to do the second part. Any suggestions?

Thanks.
