The problem can be solved easily by considering rotational simple harmonic motion.

For a linear simple harmonic motion force acting on a particle is directly proportional to the displacement of the particle from equilibrium position and directed to the equilibrium position and hence the equation of motion is given by

F = - K*x

Where F ...
