As we learnt in

Law of conservation of angular moment -

\vec{\tau }= \frac{\vec{dL}}

- wherein

If net torque is zero

i.e. \frac{\vec{dL}}= 0

\vec{L}= constant

angular momentum is conserved only when external torque is zero .



Whence V_{c}=0


L_{f}=MV_{c}R+I \omega' \:\:\left [\omega'=V_{c} /R\right ]



\frac{3}{2}MV_{c}R=\frac{MR^{2}\omega}{2} \Rightarrow V_{c}=\frac{R \omega}{3}

Option 1)

5/2 w_0R

This solution is incorrect 

Option 2)

3/2 w_0R

This solution is incorrect 

Option 3)

5/3 w_0R

This solution is correct 

Option 4)

2/3 w_0R

This solution is incorrect
