Can any object have mechanical energy even if its momentum is zero? Explain.

Answer:

Momentum is how we measure mass that is in motion. Any moving object will have momentum. Under the law of physics, the object’s momentum equals mass times velocity.

Momentum(p) = Mass(m) x Velocity(v)

If the body is at rest its velocity will be zero. If it is rest at the height it possesses gravitational potential energy hence mechanical energy.
