The mechanical energy of an SHM oscillator:

$\overline{)\frac{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{2}}{\mathbf{k}}{{\mathbf{A}}}^{{\mathbf{2}}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{2}}{\mathbf{k}}{{\mathbf{x}}}^{{\mathbf{2}}}{\mathbf{+}}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{2}}{\mathbf{m}}{{{\mathbf{v}}}_{{\mathbf{x}}}}^{{\mathbf{2}}}}$where (1/2)kA2 is the total energy E, (1/2)kx2 is the potential energy U, and (1/2)mvx2 is the kinetic energy K.

Angular frequency:

$\overline{){\mathbf{\omega }}{\mathbf{=}}\sqrt{\frac{\mathbf{k}}{\mathbf{m}}}}$
