A horizontal slingshot consists of two light, identical springs (with spring constants of 27.7 N/m) and a light cup that holds a 1.47-kg stone. Each spring has an equilibrium length of 50 cm. When the springs are in equilibrium, they line up vertically. Suppose that the cup containing the mass is pulled to x = 0.7 m to the left of the vertical and then released. Determine

a) the system's total mechanical energy.

b) the speed of the stone at x = 0.
