## Homework Statement

This is not a homework question, as we just started getting into SHM, and I want to be 100% clear what this equation means.

Can someone please all the parts, or have a site that really explains this formula?

You can think of that equation as an application of Newton's 2nd law for a force obeying Hooke's law.
