A pendulum clock that keeps correct time on the earth is taken to the moon. It will run

As the time period is given by.

And on the surface of the moon the value of the gravitation field is

(Here, g is the gravitation field on earth surface)

So on moon the time period becomes .

Hence, time period increases. Therefore, the clock will be times slower.
