The floor type does effect the bounce on a Basketball due to the kinetic energy absorbed by the floor that is why it is easier to bounce a ball higher on a basketball court than it is say on tiles and carpet court.its a godd science experiment

Yes it dependa on the density of the bounce that matter and which surface its on

Yes because different types of flooring have different texture and denseness.

the ball wont bounce high enough for you to bounce it.

Lol, If you don't know what a bounce pass is, then do not try out for basketball! It's when you pass the ball, but instead of throwing it, You bounce it on the floor to pass it to your team-ate. It's in the name..Too

a heated basketball bounces higher. DUHHHH!?

probably has something to do with the floor you are bouncing the ball on! the bounce differs from wood floor or whatever the floor is outside!

Depending on the type of material that is used for the indoor track, it is possible to bounce a basketball on the floor.

A gym floor, the lacktop has more denseness and textures.

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!!!!

The elasticity of the material that the basketball is made of will effect the strength of the bounce. The material's elasticity is the ability of the material to go back to it's original shape after being squashed, which happens when you bounce it. So when you bounce the basketball the material is squashed, the elasticity will force the ball back up by trying to go back to it's original shape, therefore creating the bounce.

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.

In basketball, such a pass is known as a "bounce pass".

never tried, however, VCT makes a good in-expensive court floor!

A bounce pass in basketball is a way of getting the ball to another player without passing it directly to them through the air. Rather, the ball is bounced off the floor to the other player.

Yes because if it is hard it goes higher if it is hard.

the more air pressure that better it bounces

So the ball will not lie dead on the floor when you bounce when you pump air in it it will be lighter and bounce higher if you slam it hard enough

Yes. If the surface is soft the basketball will not bounce as high, but if the surface is like a gym floor the basketball will bounce extrememly well. Also you have into consideration the force of friction. The more friction the surface can produce the slower the ball will go.

this is because rubber is flexable and it holds the air tightly so that no air can come out when it bounces

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.

i think a basket ball would bounce better on a hard wood floor because all NBA courts are hard wood.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No. The bounce height may depend on a variety of factors, especially the hardness of the floor, and the properties of the ball, including the amount of air it has.

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