How has basketball affected society?
Basketball has affected society in more than one way. It has expanded the game to people who would otherwise have played it, and it has also popularized brand names and tattoos.

The question is best answered in terms of elasticity. A highly elastic collision will retain most energy (a good bounce), an inelastic collision dissipates (wastes) almost a…ll energy. Imagine a steel ball bearing dropped onto a thick steel plate. The ball bearing will bounce up and down for a long time - elastic collision. Now imagine dropping a piece of plasticine. One "goop" and it's all over - no bounce. Inelastic collision. Putting more air into the basket ball makes it "tighter" and more elastic. The more elastic, the more energy is preserved, so the better the bounce. For the same reason, pumping car tyres up to their safest pressure (and no more!!!) makes them more elastic, so they waste less energy when they deform while rotating, and you get (a bit) better gas mileage. The more air pressure in the ball, the higher the ball will bounce. The less air pressure, the lower the ball will bounce. This is the same for just about any ball, too- not just basketballs. When a basketball has more pressure it tends to bounce higher because of the consequent reduced surface area. The reason a basketball that has a lower pressure bounces not so high is because alot of the energy used to bounce the ball is lost because of friction and transfer to heat. Surely the simple answer is that when filled to a high pressure, the ball is forced to retain a spherical shape (most volume for constant surface area). When such a ball hits a surface there is a distortion around the point of contact, and the higher the pressure the more rapidly the spherical shape is restored, which forces the ball to reverse its motion all the more rapidly. A deflated ball has no such pressure and won't bounce at all. Also more probabilities are there for how air pressure effects on a basketball. The reasons may be as follows: When a basketball is released, its own body goes down due to gravitational attraction. On the other hand, the air in the ball goes down after it as its weight is less than the ball. So the air will give an upward pressure which will effect the downward motion of the basketball. Again when the ball bounces up, a moment before that bounce, the air inside will start to come down quickly for repelling from the inside upward surface of the ball. Now when the ball goes up, the downward pressure of the air effects the ball.
It can affect the shot's accuracy. If you are unbalanced, your shot will most likely not be straight, unless you anticipate the shot. You have the most control over …the ball in your shooting stance. I prefer to face the basket with one foot slightly ahead of the other.
The Mccoy Lubricator, also known as Mccoy'sMojo, affected scoiety poltically, socially, and ecnomically. The lubricator hadmany uses politically as it allowed for smoth operat…ion of politician's affairs and special "closed sessions" in their offices. It affected society by allowing the average citizen to experience the same such smooth actions of thie rpoliticians. Economically it effected America by providing sales t increase socialist countries to increase their abortion clinics
The washing machine was one of the early developments for the home that would save time and effort. Along with other developments in the same era it helped to free housewives …from an almost full time job of housework. Washing could take up whole days. A machine reduced the time and allowed more time for leisure or more time for a housewife to go out of the home and work. For the wealthy households, it could mean a reduction in the number of staff so for them it could be an investment with a financial return. Other new products such as the vacuum cleaner, electric irons, gas and electrical heating, cooking and lighting all played a part in reducing the workload of the housewife. As housework today is so much easier than a century ago, it is quite normal for a wife to be working full time instead of maintaining a house full time.
Inertia is a physicl property that affect the ability of an object to change its state of motion. In another word, a tennis ball is easy to throw and is easy to stop. However,… a train is very difficult to pull, but once it is started to move, it is very difficult to stop it. So, the mass of the object is the criterium you may consider when discussing inertia. As for basketball, the mass of the ball will affect the plyer's initial ability to launch the ball in the correct trajectory, and to hit the basket. Also a heavier ball will have more gravitational force, bringing it faster toward the ground. There are also other factors, such as the strength and the height of the player. Obviously, the heavier the ball is the more difficult for the plyer to repeat the motion. I hope I started the discussion, but not so technical Said Youssef Teacher of Pre-Engineering New York
Height does not really affect the accuracy of your basketball throwing. However, tall people tend to underestimate the distance to the net and small people tend to overestimat…e the distance to the net.
it has totally distiguished segragtion and people can now play and work together in peace.
Basketball has a large impact on our society. In the NBA, the teams bring out nationalism within their city. The infamous Celtics-Lakers rivalry always produces tension with…in the two cities. Basketball, when playing at a young age, allows kids to make more friends and learn about teamwork, a skill many are missing even as adults.
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.
yes! different basketballs affect your shoot because of the texture,brand,and how much air the ball has.sometimes it has to do witht the weather like if it rains or snow…s then the rim will be wet or frozen.
Yes, of course. For example, if you dribble it on carpet it wouldn't go as high than on pavement.
Finance Does Affect Society In Various Ways As It Is The Very Lifeblood Of Any Organization Or Household,Without The Source Of Finance It Might Be Almost Impossible To Operate… So Finance Is Needed And It Is One Departnment That Can Never Be Ignored...Purchasing Of Needs&Wants,Maintenance,Salaries,Capital,Water & Electricity Bill For Example All Require Some Sort Of Finance...(SirSebastian)

It does and doesn't. If it is just rain or other just normal weather, all stadiums are enclosed, and are indoors. If it is a hurricane or a tornado, they would most likely end… the game, and get all the people to shelter.
If a basketball is flat, it gets stuck on the ground and goes nowhere. If you put alot of air in it, it might explode, so don't put too much. Put just about alot but not too… much, the perfect amount almost, where you can poke it a little bit, and it goes really high.
