A pendulum clock was moved from a location where g=9.8152 m/s^2 to another location where g=9.7959 m/s^2. During the move, the length of the clock's pendulum did not change; nevertheless, the clock lost accuracy. Assuming the clock was perfectly accurate at its previous location, how many seconds a day does it lose at the new location?
Answer in units of seconds.
