## Homework Statement

A "seconds" pendulum is one that moves through its equilibrium position once each second (period = 2.000 s). The length of a seconds pendulum in Tokyo is 0.9927 m and at Cambridge is 0.9942 m. What is the ratio of the free-fall acceleration at these two locations?

## Homework Equations

All equations for Simple Harmonic Motion

## The Attempt at a Solution

Wouldn't the free-fall acceleration be equal everywhere? If not then can someone please tell me what the length of the pendulums have to do with acceleration?
