This interactive homework problem requires the student to determine the fraction of a disk's total kinetic energy due to the rotation of a puck resting on a horizontal frictionless plane with a string wound around it and pulled on with constant force. The problem is accompanied by a sequence of questions designed to encourage critical thinking and conceptual analysis. It is part of a larger collection of interactive problems developed by the Illinois Physics Education Research Group.
