    3. The attempt at a solution

    this is fairly simple..

    but i believe it has potential energy and kinetic energy because of linear motion and rotary motion.

    You are close to correct, but you should be more specific, I believe. What kind(s) of kinetic energy? And saying that it "has potential energy" is not really accurate.... what can you say about the potential energy?
