Simple Harmonic Motion Of The Center Of The Earth

The gravitational force on a body located a distance R from the center of a uniform spherical mass is due solely to the mass lying at distance r<R or r=R, measured from the center of the sphere. This mass exerts a force as if it were a point mass at the origin. Use the above result to show that if you drill a hole through the
