If I am given the mass of the block, the spring constant constant k and the distance by which the spring is held compressed before being released, how could I find the initial velocity of the block after it leaves the spring?

Thank you for any help you may be able to provide.

m d2/d2t(x) + kx = 0

solve this differential equation for x(t)
