Question

As shown in the figure above, a string is wound around a uniform disk of mass M and radius R. The end of the string is attached to the ceiling.

If the disk is at rest and the string between the disk and the ceiling is vertical when we release it, how fast will the disk be going after it has fallen a distance h?
