Differential Equations Applications in Physics: Spring & Block with non-zero v0

Assume no friction. Assume the block weighs 5 pounds and that the spring constant k = 20 lbs/ft and that the spring is released from the position x(0) = 4 inches (that is, stretched by 4 inches) with initial velocity x’(0) = 40 ft/sec. Determine x(t).

What have you been able to do with this?
