the potential energy stored by a spring is given by the subsequent formula: \[EP = \frac{1}{2}k{\left( {\Delta x} \right)^2} = \frac{1}{2} \times 1000 \times {\left( {0.1} \right)^2} = ...Joules\]

oh oops sorry i forgot a parentheses haha so i got 5 is 5 J our solution?

yes! since all that potential energy will transform itself in kinetic energy of our projectile
