# Find the total energy at the equilibrium position

A 0.50-kg mass is attached to a spring with a spring constant of 20 N/m along a horizontal, frictionless surface. The object oscillates in simple harmonic motion and has a speed of 1.5 m/s at the equilibrium position. What is the total energy of the system?
