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 v2


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


So, a stationary body does not possess kinetic energy.
