A block of mass 2.80 kg is placed against a horizontal spring of constant k = 805 N/m and pushed so the spring compresses by 0.0650 m. (a)What is the elastic potential energy of the block-spring system (in J)?  (b)If the block is now released and the surface is frictionless, calculate the block's speed (in m/s) after leaving the spring.
