Maximum Speed of a Pendulum#

A simple pendulum swings at small angles.

Part 1#

If the amplitude and length of the pendulum are both doubled, how much is the maximum speed of the pendulum’s bob increased/decreased? You may assume that the amplitude remains sufficiently small that it still undergoes simple harmonic motion.

Please enter a real number (symbols will not be accepted).
