Dear Aditya Nijampurkar,

Ans:- It is clear that the trajectory is a circle iff the bottommost point is in stable condition i.e it is not sleepping.

Next, the CM falls a distance R. as there is no sleepping hence this entire energy converts into rotational K.E hence

1/3M (2R)²W²=MgR

Hence W=√(4g/3R)

Hence V=2WR=2√(4gR/3)
