(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A simple pendulum oscillates with frequency f. What is its frequency if it accelerates at 0.50g upward

2. Relevant equations

f = 1/2pi sqrt(g/L)

3. The attempt at a solution

I want to say that g in the equation is equal to 0.50g, but I know this is wrong. Why do I plug in a value of 1.50g for g?
