Solution 1

The time period of a simple pendulum, `T = 2pi sqrt(m/k)`

For a simple pendulum, k is expressed in terms of mass m, as: `k prop m` 

`m/k =` Constant

Hence, the time period T, of a simple pendulum is independent of the mass of the bob.


Solution 2

In case of a spring, k does not depend upon m. However, in case of a simple pendulum, k is directly proportional to m and hence the ratio m/k is constant quantity
