Simple Harmonic Motion: Period depends on k coefficient of spring and mass right?

  1. Period does not depend on amplitude. Correct?

    I deduced this from the equations for simple harmonic motion:

    ω=2πf
    ω=√(k/m)

    Yes, you are correct.

    The period of a SHO depends on the k value, i.e. stiffness of the spring, and the mass of the oscillating body as
    [tex]\omega=\sqrt{\frac{k}{m}}[/tex]
