A 0.40kg object connected to a light spring with a force constant of 19.6N/m oscillates on a frictionless horizontal surface. If the spring is compressed 4.0 cm and released from rest, determine (a) the maximum speed of the object.

2. Relevant equations

F = -kx

3. The attempt at a solution

Does this involve kinetic energy?
