This is the question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A massless spring with a spring constant of 0.50 N/m, has a mass of 0.7 kg on its end. The maximum speed of the end is 2.5 m/s. What is the angular frequency of the system?

I don't know how to approach this problem at all. I just know that omega/2pi is the frequency. But, we don't even have omega. I am so stuck and confused.
