Harmonic oscillator - The spring

This applet simulates the motion of an ideal spring in order to show that it is representable with trigonometric functions. It is possibe to infer the relation among the period [math]T[/math] of the motion and the parameters of the spring (mass [math]m[/math] and elastic constant [math]k[/math]).
