3. The smooth particle has a mass of 80 g. It is attached to an elastic cord extending from 0 to P and due to slotted arm guide moves along the horizontal circular path r = (0.8 sin 8) m. If the cord has a stiffness of k = 30 N/m and an unstretched length of 0.25 m, determine the force of the guide on the particle when 8 = 60°. The guide has a e = 5 rad/s and e = 2 rad/s".
