Faster.

The ball experiences greater air resistance when it is going faster due to increased drag force. This is because at higher speeds, there is more air flowing past the ball, leading to a larger resistance force acting in the opposite direction of its motion.

Yes, it slows the ball down, it is called air resistance.

### What ball will fall to the ground faster basketball or soccer ball?

weight doesnt matter, the bigger one, which has the higher resistance will fall a tiny bit slower

### Is a ball with holes in it slower because of air resistance?

Yes, like flyswatters. they have holed to lower air resistance

### Why does the ball have more air resistance when its going faster?

Because........ Its fighting against more gravitational pull which is what is making it go faster. ...I think. You might just double want to check this!

### What causes a flower to fall slower to the ground than a golf ball?

Air resistance. (friction).

### Which ball drops to the ground faster?

They all drop at the same rate. Only objects that are fuzzy in some way drop slower because air resistance slows them a little. If there were no air, a feather and a cannon ball would drop at the exact same rate.

### How is air resistance related to a catapult?

Air resistance can affect the trajectory of a projectile launched by a catapult by slowing it down as it travels through the air. The greater the air resistance, the shorter the distance the object will travel. Designing a catapult with aerodynamic components can help minimize the impact of air resistance on the projectile's flight path.

### Why does a sheet of paper fall slower than one that is crumpled into a ball?

A crumpled paper ball has a smaller surface area compared to a flat sheet of paper, which increases air resistance and slows down its fall. The crumpled ball also has more internal air resistance, which further hinders its fall speed.

### How do you control the speed of your bowling ball?

Use more or less force than you usually do, more force, faster ball, less force, slower ball.

### Which ball rolls down a slope faster a ping pong ball or a tennis ball?

If thrown at the same speed, a basketball. A basketball is heavier and will have momentum going with it while a tennis ball will have little momentum. A basketball will roll faster than most balls.

### What falls faster a tennis ball or soccer ball?

### Does the size of a ball change the amount it will roll?

yes it will roll slower on flat surfaces and faster on a downard slope
