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.
