Yes. If it is colder the ball will bounce less than when it is warmer.

Because the temprature is responsible for the pressure inside the ball.

Yes the Temperature does effect the bounce of a basketball. If your playing outside in the cold, the ball will not bounce as high as it would inside a gym. If the Temperature is pretty decent then the ball will bounce how its supposed to.Alright!!!!

Yes, temperature affects the pressure of the air and when the pressure outside the ball is lower, the pressure inside will be greater, thus making it bounce better.

There are a few reasons why a baseball's temperature affect it's bounce. The higher the heat the faster the molecules move.

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 bounce and travel indefinitely upwards and never come back down until a gravitational force pulls the basketball towards it.

Temperature does not affect the bounce of a rubber ball. Let's say you bounce a rubber ball on the grass. The result will be different then bouncing a rubber ball on a concrete surface. The result is different because you are using a solid, hard surface to bounce the ball with. But the temperature will not affect the bounce of a rubber ball. you can test it out for youself.

the temperature of a basketball effects it's bounce because the air partacles in the ball slow down causing it to lose pressure and it doesn't bounce as well. if a ball has more pressure it bounces better.

A basketball bounces its highest at 76 degrees fahrenheit. I did a science experiment on it.

Because when something is not inflated fully then it is partially flat. Which will affect its ability to bounce

Several factors affect the bounce of a basketball including the height that it was dropped from. The bounce factor includes elasticity, air pressure, force applied to it, and how rigid the surface is that the ball is bounced on.

Answer Yes. A basketball with no air will not bounce as much as a basketball with the right amount of air .

Depends on a lot of factors. Climate can effect how long a basketball holds its bounce. Really cold weather (below 50) will cause a basketball to loose it's bounce rather quickly. If stored at room temperature, a basketball should hold its bounce for around 3-6 months.

Yeah, so temperature simply affect the bounce. That's just the way it is Answer: the temperature of the ground affects how solid the ground is. If you compare bouncing a ball on cement (frozen ground-great bounce!) to bouncing it on sand (mud-no bounce) or a padded rug (grass-like-some bounce) you can understand how this works.

Probably because if its windy and you try to bounce the ball it will blow away.

The basketball at room temperature has more energy, because cold is just the absence of energy. The ball that is frozen would not bounce as high because it is wanting to stay in that shape, and has less time to react.

Yes because if it's too hot the ball would melt and not bounce.

The leather is put on the basketball for grip, wear and tear, and consistency. The bounce of the ball comes from the rubber bladder that the leather is surrounding. Air pressure and the quality of the ball effect it's bounce more than the leather.

yes, if under it will not bounce correctly and i fover inflated sometimes ball become deformd causing bubbles.

you bounce a ball in basketball by hitting the ball against the ground.

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

Helium will make a basketball bounce higher because when it is put into the basketball the air particles move faster and faster causing the basketball to bounce higher.
