My question had 2 parts:

a) A 2.0 kg object oscillates with simple harmonic motion on a spring of force constant 580.0 N/m. The maximum speed is 1.0 m/s. What is the total energy of the object and the spring?

Answer: 1.0 J

b) What is the maximum amplitude of the oscillation?

This question seems like it would be easy, but I just don't understand what I'm solving for.
