A 0.44 kg object connected to a light spring with a spring constant of 22.0 N/m oscillates on a frictionless horizontal surface. The spring is compressed 4.0 cm and released from rest.
(a) Determine the maximum speed of the mass.
28.28 cm/s
(b) Determine the speed of the mass when the spring is compressed 1.5 cm.
26.22 cm/s
(c) Determine the speed of the mass when the spring is stretched 1.5 cm.
26.22 cm/s
(d) For what value of x does the speed equal one-half the maximum speed?

a,b,c are right. im just having trouble with (d)
