detailed solution

Correct option is C

Let M be the mass of the cylinder and R be its radius. When it is at the top of the inclined plane of height h, its potential energy is Mgh (Figure). As it rolls down the inclined plane, it moves along the plane and also rotates about an axis passing through its axis perpendicular to the plane of the figure, which shows its section in the plane of the paper. It thus acquires both kinetic energy of translation 12Mv2 and kinetic energy of rotation 12Iω2 where v is its linear velocity and ω its angular velocity when it reaches the bottom of the plane. I is its moment of inertia about the axis mentioned above which is given byFrom the law of conservation of energy, we havePotential energy = Translational kinetic energy + Rotational kinetic energy Mgh=12Mv2+12Iω2Mgh=12MR2ω2+1212MR2ω2=34MR2ω2ω2=4gh3R2ω=2Rgh3, which is choice (c).
