PhySP18SS6.2.6 The number of oscillations of the inertial balance is inversely proportional to the mass that is set on the balance because it takes a lot of force to cause the mass on the balance to change directions. The cool thing about an inertial balance os that you would get the same results anywhere in the universe you took the balance as long as the gravitational attraction of the nearest big body was perpendicular to the balance. Since the movement is sideways, gravity play no role. That is why it is called an INERTIAL balance.
