    Hello NaivaAbafar3712, 

    That's a great question; let's look into it! 

    Kinetic energy is the energy-related to movement. As air particles are constantly moving, saying that particles do not have kinetic energy below 0 degrees Celcius would be like saying there is no air. If that was the case, we could not breathe below 0 degrees... 

    Hope that helps!
