## Homework Statement

I have been asked to show that a particle of mass m executing simple harmonic motion with frequency f, has a potential energy

V(x) = 2[tex]\pi^{2}[/tex]f[tex]^{2}[/tex]mx[tex]^{2}[/tex]

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I know that V(x) = 1/2m[tex]\omega^{2}[/tex]x[tex]^{2}[/tex] and that [tex]\omega[/tex]=2[tex]\pi[/tex]f

but i can't find how to show this anywhere - not in the lecture notes, my books or the internet - I am finding this quantum mechanics course a massive step up from all the other areas of physics!
