    T ≡ √x

    x being the spring deflection equal to the ratio m*g/k

    since g and k are constant , then T ≡ √m

    higher T means slower oscillation

    angular velocity

    w = √(k/m) , k=stiffness constant , m=mass

    ---> if larger value for mass then smaller value of w

    hence slower oscillations
