Velocity & Displacement of a Block

A spring of constant k=200N/m is attached between a block of mass 2 kg and a vertical wall.The block rests on a frictionless plane and the COG of the block and the spring are in the same line horizontal to the table.

If a constant force of 10N (in the positive x direction) is applied to the spring at t=o when the spring in undeformed and the system is at rest determine:

a.) the velocity of the block when x = 40mm.

b.) the maximum displacement of the block
