I installed app called zoom and it somehow stopped working. I tried reinstalling it but still wouldn't work. I'm trying to delete any files related to the application.
find / * | grep "zoom"
Is there a way i can delete files shown by this command

Your find command is silly. How did you install zoom? If via synaptic, apt, apt-get or any other installer that respects the Ubuntu packaging system, you may see the files with
dpkg -L zoom
and remove it (and not confuse the packaging system) with
sudo apt purge zoom
If you insist on using find, re-read man find, and do something like
sudo find / -iname 'zoom*'
or (read man xargs)
sudo find / -type f -iname 'zoom*' -print0 | xargs -0 echo rm
to delete all the files whose names start with zoom. Remove the echo word when you are happy with the generated file list.
