## Homework Statement

I have run across another problem while reviewing for finals that I am not able to really understand, and this one I have no clue how to approach. I am given that a block is of mass 1 kg, it is placed on a spring of constant 500 N/m at the bottom of a frictionless plane inclined at 30°. When the spring is released the block travels 1.5 m up the plane, losing contact with the spring. What is the speed of the block when it has traveled 0.9 m up the plane?

## Homework Equations

Not really sure, I tried using:

W=(1/2)kx

^{2}

and:

K=(1/2)mv

^{2}

## The Attempt at a Solution

So, I tried finding the work, and then using the work in place of K to find the velocity. This returned double digit numbers, which due to the question being multi-choiced with only single digit numbers, are obviously wrong. Also, where am I supposed to use the supplied angle?
