How is the formula for angular derived?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\omega=\sqrt{\frac{g}{L}}[/tex]

my book has these equations:

[tex]F= -mg sin\theta = m \frac{d^2s}{dt^2}[/tex]

[tex]\frac{d^2 \theta}{dt^2}=-\frac{g}{L}sin\theta[/tex]

[tex]\frac{d^2 \theta}{dt^2}=-\frac{g}{L}\theta[/tex]

[tex]\omega=\sqrt{\frac{g}{L}}[/tex]

what exactly is m [tex]\frac{d^2s}{dt^2}[/tex] and [tex]\frac{d^2 \theta}{dt^2}[/tex]
