    Static means one per class, not one for each object no matter how many instance of a class might exist. This means that you can use them without creating an instance of a class.Static methods are implicitly final, because overriding is done based on the type of the object, and static methods are attached to a class, not an object. However, you can’t override a static method with a nonstatic method. In other words, you can’t change a static method into an instance method in a subclass
