Problem 6.75

A 2.50-kg textbook is forced against a horizontal spring of negligible mass and force constant 250 N>m, compressing the spring a distance of 0.250 m. When released, the textbook slides on a horizontal tabletop with coefficient of kinetic friction mk = 0.30. Use the workenergy theorem to find how far the textbook moves from its initial position before it comes to rest
