According to the information provided we have one string that connects two objects. On one of the ends is a puck that is revolving on a horizontal, frictionless surface and on the other we have an object that is suspended freely.

The force with which the object that is suspended pulls the string providing the tension that acts as the centripetal force for the puck that is revolving. This force is equal to mass* acceleration due to gravity = 1.7*9.81 = 16.677 N.

**Therefore the magnitude of the force that maintains circular motion acting on the puck is 16.677 N.**

Now the tension in the string that maintains a circular motion in the puck is mv^2/r, where m is the mass of the puck, v is the linear velocity and r is the radius.

Therefore 16.677 = 0.034*v^2/ 1.2

=> v^2 = 16.677*1.2/0.034

=> v^2 = 588.6

=> v = 24.26 m/s.

**The linear velocity of the puck is 24.26 m/s.**
