Thus at the top the kinetic energy is zero and the potential energy is m g (r+h)

At the bottom the potential energy is m g r

so it gained potential energy of m g h

That is how much kinetic energy it lost

Ke = .5 m v^2 + .5 I w^2

I = m r^2

w = v/r

so in terms of v

Ke = .5 m v^2 + .5 m r^2 (v^2/r^2)

Ke = m v^2 total (half translational and half rotational)

so

m v^2 = m g h

v = sqrt (g h)
