Solution

## The correct option is B 2mgrThe difference in kinetic energy arises to the height, as the particle reaches to highest point of the circle its one part of kinetic energy changes to potienal energy. P. E. = mghP. E. = mg (2r) Thererefore change in kinetic enegy is equal to increase in potential energy that is 2mgr.
