Two different simple harmonic oscillators have the same natural frequency (f=2.80 Hz) when they are on the surface of the Earth. The first oscillator is a vertical spring and mass, the second is a pendulum. If both systems are moved to the surface of the moon (g=1.67 m/s2), what is the new frequency of the vertical spring and mass?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Calculate the new frequency of the pendulum. ?

This is the question. For it i just used the frequency to find the period, i then used this to find the length of the pendulum, i think solved with the new g, to find the period, and then solved back to find the new frequency, i tried this several times, and i cannot seem to get to the new frequency. I have tried similar things with the spring and mass, but i cannot find the right equations to find it.
