    One end of a spring with spring constant k is attached to the wall. The other end is attached to a block of mass m. The block rests on a frictionless horizontal surface. The equilibrium position of the left side of the block is defined to be x=0. The length of the relaxed spring is L... (see attached)

    x(t) = Ccos(omega*t) + Ssin(omega*t)
    At t = 0, x = x_init
    Therefore, ...
