# Can a ball rebound to a height greater than the height from which is was dropped?

no,due to physics the rebound weight and energy

### What factors affect the bounce height of a dropped ball?

Well there are quite a lot of variables-factors- that can effect the height of a dropped ball..........such as........... the weight of the object, or ball dropped the height in which the ball was dropped from the materials that make up the ball( for instance, if it were a bouncy rubber ball, then it would effect the ball's rebound) the surface that the ball hit(like if it were a slanted surface the ball would launch diagonally…

### Does the rebound height has a constant relationship with the original height of a tennis ball when released from rest and bounces on a bench?

As long as the tennis ball is not thrust downward, yes, the tennis ball will bounce back to the same proportion of its original height, no matter how far it's dropped, as long as the height is small enough that air resistance can be ignored. The ball will eventually come to rest due to this air resistance.

### How high can a basketball bounce?

If we knew from what height the ball, when dropped, would reach its terminal velocity, and if we knew the percentage of rebound the ball would give, we could then be certain. I can only guess that a basketball will rebound approximately 75% of the height from which it is dropped, and if the height at which it would reach terminal velocity is maybe 300 feet, the ball would bounce back up to 225 feet…

### What effects the height a ball will bounce?

a ball can never bounce over the height from which it was bounced unless u aplly a force. The factors that affect the bounce of a dropped ball include the height from which it is dropped; the force applied to it, if any, when dropped; the acceleration of gravity, which is different depending upon what planet you're one; the elasticity of the ball; the density of the atmosphere, which affects "air resistance"; and the rigidity…

### What happens to the energy of a ball when it is dropped to the floor?

The kinetic energy of the ball is converted into elastic energy through deformation (I assume we are not talking about steel balls). The elastic energy is then released, pushing the ball back up. Some energy is lost in the ball where it will cause heating, and some is probably lost to the floor, depending how elastic the floor is, so the rebound bounce won't reach the same height as the initial height, but total energy…

### How high do balls bounce?

The height to which a ball will bounce depends on the height from which it is dropped, what the ball is made out of (and if it is inflated, what the pressure is), and what the surface it bounces from is made out of. The radius of the ball doesn't really matter, if you are measuring the height of the ball from the bottom of the ball to the ground.

### Does size effect how high a ball bounces?

Yes if the ball is bigger it weighs more and the more weight the ball has the higher it will bounce but the height its dropped from also has to do with the how high it bounces Yes if the ball is bigger it weighs more and the more weight the ball has the higher it will bounce but the height its dropped from also has to do with the how high it bounces

### What factors affect the bounce of a dropped ball?

The factors that affect the bounce of a dropped ball include...... the height from which it is dropped; the force applied to it, if any, when dropped; the acceleration of gravity, which is different depending upon what planet you're on ; the elasticity of the ball; the density of the atmosphere, which affects "air resistance"; and the rigidity and elasticity of the surface on which the ball bounces.

### A 100g steel ball falls from a height of 1.80m on to a horizontal plate and rebounds to a height of 1.25m. Find its Ek as it leaves the plate on the rebound and its velocity of rebound?

The ball at a height has a certain potential energy and the potential energy in relation to plate at the highest point after rebound will be equal to ball's total kinetic energy an instant after rebound. The first figure of 1.80 m isn't necessary to perform calculations. Ep = m * g * h Ek = m * v2 / 2 Ek = Ep = 0.1 * 9.81 * 1.25 = 1.22625 J v =…

### Which ball will hit the ground first a ping pong ball or a baseball or a bowling ball?

If they're all dropped at the same time, from the same height, in a vacuum, then they'll all hit the ground at exactly the same instant of time. -- If they're dropped at different times, in a vacuum, then the one dropped first will hit the ground first. -- If they're dropped from different heights, in a vacuum, then the one dropped from the least height will hit the ground first. -- If they're…

### When a rubber ball is dropped on a surfaced why does it not rebound has light as the point from which is dropped?

The entire concept works on the conservation of energy. If the ball were to keep its entire amount of energy (both potential and kinetic), it would continue to bounce back to the same height forever. However, in the real world we must include factors such as air resistance and collision forces into the model of this bouncing ball. The factors take away some of the ball's energy, reducing the height it will be able to…

### What factors affect a bouncy ball from bouncy?

The factors that affect the bounce of a dropped ball include...... the height from which it is dropped; the force applied to it, if any, when dropped; the acceleration of gravity, which is different depending upon what planet you're on ; the elasticity of the ball; the density of the atmosphere, which affects "air resistance"; and the rigidity and elasticity of the surface on which the ball bounces.

### When a tennis ball is dropped to the ground it does not bounce back to its original height?

This is because...when a ball is dropped onto the ground, some of its energy and momentom is lost due to friction from the surface and when it bounces back....the gravitaton force pulls it downwards.... so it does not bounce back to its original height. if the ball is dropped onto an arena where there is zero gravitaion and friction, it will keep on bouncing back to thr same height.

### How does the drop height of a ball affect the height of its bounce?

The higher the height at which the ball is dropped from, the higher the ball bounces. Look at it in terms of energy. Initially, before the ball is dropped, the ball's potential energy, E is given by E = mgh, where m is the mass of the ball, g is the gravitational acceleration and h is the height of the ball. When the ball is dropped, the potential energy is converted to kinetic energy, and…
