Simple Harmonic Motion: Period depends on k coefficient of spring and mass right?

Period does not depend on amplitude. Correct?

I deduced this from the equations for simple harmonic motion:

ω=2πf
ω=√(k/m)

Yes, you are correct.

The period of a SHO depends on the k value, i.e. stiffness of the spring, and the mass of the oscillating body as
[tex]\omega=\sqrt{\frac{k}{m}}[/tex]
