A round body of mass M, radius R, and moment of inertia I= BMR^2 is rolling without slipping. Its kinetic energy can be decomposed into the energy of its center of mass motion (translation) and the enrgy of rotation about its center of mass. The fractions of the body's kinetc energy associated with these contributions depend only on B, Find these fractions...
