Can anyone help me with this question?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A simple harmonic oscillator can be considered to be a small mass "m" on a spring of a force constant "k" when the force is f = -kx and the potential energy is V(x) = 1/2mw(squared)x(squared) where w = square root of (k/m)

Knowing this I need to show that the minimum value for the energy of the ocillator is E (min) = h(bar) * w
