A "seconds pendulum" is one that moves through its equilibrium position once each second. (The period of the pendulum is precisely 2.000 s.) The length of a seconds pendulum is 0.9925 m at Tokyo and 0.9948 m at Cambridge, England. What is the ratio of the free-fall accelerations at these two locations?
