##### Solution :-

The energy possessed by a body by the virtue of its motion is termed mechanical energy or kinetic energy. Every moving object possesses mechanical energy. A body uses mechanical energy to try to work. Kinetic energy of a hammer is employed in driving a nail into a log of wood, mechanical energy of air is employed to run windmills, etc.
