3) The 50-lb block rests on the rough surface for which the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.2. A force
F = (40 + s2) lb, where s is in ft, acts on the block in the direction shown. If the spring is originally unstretched
(s = 0) and the block is at rest, determine the power developed by the force the instant the block has moved
s = 1.5 ft.
