I need help with a physics problem

In a popular new mini hockey game, players use small launchers with springs to move a 5 gram puck. Each spring has a spring constant of 150 N/m and can be compressed up to 5 cm.

  1. Solve for the maximum speed with which the puck can be launched. Show all of the work necessary to reach your solution. Start with general equations and explain what you are doing and why you did what you did.
  2. Evaluate your solution. Describe how you evaluated your answer and whether or not you think your answer is reasonable.
