# Average energy mass on a spring

**1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data**

Hi, I hope this isn’t a silly question. I am looking to find the mean potential energy of a mass on a spring with spring constant k and maximum displacement x0.

**2. Relevant equations**

**3. The attempt at a solution**

I know the maximum energy is 1/2*kx0^2 so would the mean potential energy be half that?
