A 50 g ice cube can slide without friction up and down a 30° slope. The ice cube is pressed against a spring at the bottom of the slope, compressing the spring 13 cm. The spring constant is 20 N/m. When the ice cube is released, what distance will it travel up the slope before reversing direction?

I know that the force = 260 j
f= (20*13)
I'm not really sure where to go from here
 I know that there is know kinetic energy at the beginning and no potenitial energy at the end
