    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    how does F = -KX become A = -KX

    where A = -W^2 X

    A = acceleration
    x = displacement
    k = constant
    f = force
    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I'm kinda lost here...if F = -kx and A = -kx, then F = A??
    Could you further clarify your question and perhaps provide some sort of a context?
