*Lowest possible energy?

How would one calculate the lowest possible energy of a particle?

Could please elaborate what you exactly mean by "energy of a particle?"

Because the momentum and position are uncertain, the energy may be uncertain as well. Sometimes, the window of uncertainty is given and you could use the lowest value in this region to calculate the approximate lowest energy level.
