How does the force of gravity affect the height of basketballs on different types of floorings?
The gravity is the same regardless of flooring type. The bouncyness of the floor depends on the floor material and this is what affects how high the ball will bounce. For example, carpet will absorb energy and ball will not bounce as high as on concrete or a sprung wood floor, which do not take a lot of energy from the bounce. If it touches pie, it explodes. Thus, causing a nuclear explosion in the earths core.

Thanks for the feedback!
ok so the men's basketball is heavier obviously while the girls is a little bit lighter. Therefore the heavier of the ball the more muscel you need to make it go higher. This …shows the girls basketball would be easier to bounce high.
I don't know. Figure it out on your own .
Gravity brings the basketball towards Earth.
Use the fors on your hand and push it up or down or side to side.
Yes. Without going into the general theory of relativity, the further you are way from a mass, the less gravitational force is present. (law of inverse squares)
The type of floor affects your jump because some floor are made of things that absorb your jumping energy and some floors don't. Hope it helps JustKenda
it depends if they use different types of wood because different wood means different dencity ,and a more solid foundation for the ball to bounce higher
Yes: The more distant you are from the planet the lower the gravity is. Climbing a mountain or riding in an airplane does this to but the change is so small that it is not mea…surable.
Gravity affects the bounce of a basketball because if there is gravity, the basketball will come back down after it bounces. But if there is no gravity, the basketball will bo…unce and travel indefinitely upwards and never come back down until a gravitational force pulls the basketball towards it.
Because when you have the ball and dribbling it, your going againts the law of gravity. It also affects because what ever goes up must come down...
Everything the basketball does after it leaves the hand is the result of the forces acting on it and its velocity achieved from the hands launching it. The force that acts o…n the basketball is the force of gravity.
gravity affects all object in the same way, as a gravitation attraction between two objects. the only changing factor between objects is the objects mass. the larger the mass,… the more gravity acts on it. the equation for gravity of any two given objects is g = Gm1m2/r^2 that is to say that the gravitational force between two objects of mass 1 and mass 2 is equal to their masses multiplyed by eachother and the gravitational constant G over their distance apart squared. the further two objects are from eachother, the weaker the force is between them.
On Earth, the force of gravity is always approximately 9.8 m/s 2 .
According to my science class, force affects an object in several ways. But to understand the force effects, you must first know about the concept of Inertia. Inertia is basic…ally the tendency for an object to maintain it's current state of motion. Also known as Newton's First Law - An object at rest will stay at rest unless acted upon by a force and an object in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by a force. Think of a baseball flying through space. That baseball keep on traveling forever in the same direction unless it encounters a force such as gravity or hits an asteroid. Or imagine a baseball that was simply placed in the middle of space with no push. That ball would stay in the same spot forever unless it encountered a force like a collision or a gravity field. So you now know that force is the thing that affects and changes an object's motion. One giant example of force and inertia interacting is our solar system. The planets will never stop moving because they where put in motion long ago by some vast explosion. But they don't fly off into space because the force of gravity wielded by the sun has caught them in its pull and is able to change their headlong motion into an eternal loop. To put it simply, force affects objects as either a push or a pull.
