Kinetic energy is given by:

$\overline{){\mathbf{K}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{2}}{{\mathbf{mv}}}^{{\mathbf{2}}}}$, where m is mass and v is velocity.

A.

As the projectile approaches its maximum height, the velocity becomes zero at the maximum height.

This means that the kinetic energy will be zero.
