A 0.80-kg block is held in place against the spring by a 67-N horizontal external force. The external force is removed, and the block is projected with a velocity v1 = 1.2 m/s upon separation from the spring. The block descends a ramp and has a velocity v2 = 1.9 m/s at the bottom. The track is frictionless between points A and B. The block enters a rough section at B, extending to E. The coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.39. The velocity of the block is v3 = 1.4 m/s at C. The block moves on to D, where it stops. In Fig. 7.4, the force constant of the spring is..

2. Relevant equations

K1 +U1 +W other = K2+ U2.. ect .. U2=0.5kx^2 .. K1=(0.5)mv^2

3. The attempt at a solution

I've tries solving the problem with the equation above but I really just don't know where to start especially since there are no units of distance given.. Can someone lead me in the right direction please?
