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

Answer:

No, Because its potential and kinetic energy are zero.

Mechanical energy = kinetic energy + potential energy

Mechanical energy = 0

Since potential energy = kinetic energy = 0

v = 0

1/2mv2= 0

So, momentum, p = mv = 0

Any object can not have momentum even if its mechanical energy is zero.
