(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Please help with this!! Harmonic Motion

Two masses m1=100 g and m2=100 g slide freely in a horizontal frictionless track and are connected by a spring whose force constant is k=.5 N/m. Find the frequency of oscillatory motion for this system. I know omega = sqrt (k/m), but I have two masses, rather than just one. How does this work? Could someone give me an idea of how I should go about solving this?

Thanks!
