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


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.
