Does any one know where this formula come from ?

$\alpha (t) = -\omega^2\ \Theta(t)$

Thanks

It looks like the formula relating the angular acceleration $\alpha$ and the angular displacement $\theta$. The $\omega$ is the angular frequency and this equation is the same as the simple harmonic oscillator. You can think of a spinning wheel rotating back and fro forever.
