A pendulum bob of mass M1 oscillates with a period of 1.0 s. If the length of the pendulum remains the same, but the pendulum bob is replaced with another one of mass M2 = 2*M1, what is the new period? I need help.

A pendulum of mass m= 0.8 kg and length l=1 m is hanging from the ceiling. The massless string of the pendulum is attached at point P. The bob of the pendulum is a uniform shell (very thin hollow sphere) of radius r=0.4 m, and the length l of the pendulum is measured from the ...
