# A spring is compressed 0.100 m and launches a 3.25 kg object across frictionless ice. After some distance, the object hits a rough patch of ice where the coefficient of kinetic friction of the object on the surface is 0.200. If the spring constant of the spring is 137 N/m, find the distance the object travels across the rough patch of ice using work and energy.
