a block of wood of mass 0.25kg is attached to one end of a spirnf og constant stiffness 100N/m. The block can oscillate horizontally on a frictionless surface, the other end of the spring being fixed.

a) calculate the maximum elastic potential energy of the system for a horizontal oscillation of amplitude 0.20m.

i tried to use the equation

Ep=(1/2)*(mass)*(omega^2)*(displacement)

but i wasn't sure if this was the right way to go about it because i couldn't figure out how i could find out the angular frequency

thanks for your help!
