A block with mass 4.0 kg is attached to a horizontal spring and moves in simple harmonic motion. The force constant of the spring is 200 N/m. At t = 0 the object is 0.10 m to the right of its equilibrium position and is moving to the left with a speed of 0.80 m/s. During its motion, what is the maximum speed of the block?
