🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Moussa's class at UCF.

Solution: A 2.30-kg textbook is forced against a horizontal spring of negligible mass and force constant 260 N/m , compressing the spring a distance of 0.260 m. When released, the textbook slides on a horizontal tabletop with coefficient of kinetic friction μk=0.30. Use the work-energy theorem to find how far the textbook moves from its initial position before coming to rest.
