(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I'm pulling my hair out over this problem. A spring with a force constant of k is compressed x meters. An object of mass m is placed against the spring. The spring is then released. At what velocity is the object moving at the instant that is ceases to touch the spring?

2. Relevant equations

E=0.5kx^2

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm really unsure. All of my solutions don't seem realistic.
