1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A spring with a 0.500kg mass is pulled 0.25m from the equilibrium position. Calculate the potential energy of the spring at 0.25m, if the spring constant is 6.8N/m.

2. Relevant equations

Ep=mgh

Ep=kx^2/2

3. The attempt at a solution

Don't know where to start, sorry!
