# Does a stationary body possess kinetic energy?

Answer :

Kinetic energy of a body is due to its motion or velocity, if the body is stationary then velocity = 0

Kinetic energy *=* *m v ^{2}*

*Substituting value of velocity v in the equation we get kinetic energy = 0*

So, a stationary body does not possess kinetic energy.
