can a body have energy without momentum & momentum without energy?
Asked by Rupali Sharma | 27th Feb, 2011, 12:00: AM
Yes, a body can have energy without momentum. e.g. a stone lying on a cliff at a height h from the ground has energy (=mgh) but no momentum, since it's velocity is zero.
But it cannot have momentum without energy.
Hope this clarifies your doubt.
