Not to any appreciable extent. Bounce is caused by the elasticity of the material comprising the ball and the surface on which it is bounced.

For example, on concrete a basketball will bounce higher than a baseball, but a golf ball

--How high it bounces depends on how much force you exert on it. If you only let it drop, it will not bounce higher that the point you dropped it from and every time it bounces, it will go less and less high. anyway, the bigger the ball, the more force you will have to exert on it to make it bounce higher than the point it was dropped, or "bounced" from.

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

The size of a soccer ball does not affect how high it bounces because gravity pulls down a ball at the same, no matter what size it is.

As long as they have the same density and mass, size will not affect it

Does the size of the ball determine how high the ball will bounce? I need the answer for a science project.

I don't believe so. Think of a basketball and a super ball. (I know, this is for example) Both of them bounce super high, and a baseball doesn't bounce. I think it depends on the air inside of it and not the size. Basketballs have air, super balls too, footballs bounce a little also.

yes size effect the speed of a ball.

If it is hollow yes it does. The smaller the hallow ball the less air fits into it making it bounce less well. Except of course if the materials are different in which case it is possible the smaller ball would be more bouncy. The bouncier it is the more bounces you would get without it rolling.

A little, to the extent that a smaller (lighter) ball is fighting the pull of gravity less as it bounces upward, so it may get a little higher. But the height the ball bounces is much more dependent upon the resiliency - the "springiness" - of the rubber or rubber compound the ball is made from.

golf balls because there heavier in weight adnd because there smaller in size

The bigger the ball, the farther it travels.

The size of a ball does affect how fast it rolls. Surface also play a major role in how fast a ball will move.

a size 4 ball is used for high 5 netball (which is what younger players play) and a size 5 ball is what is used in 7s netball which is what adults play x

high school use adult size football. And most high school leagues use a collage style ball instead of a pro style

User Avatar

Depends on the kind of ball- and whether you mean the size of the ball, or how high it can go in flight. A basketball is large than a golf ball.

Yes, JR footballs are smaller in "girth". This makes throwing the ball easier for small hands. An official size HIGH SCHOOL ball will be stamped with the NHFS stamp.

i think the size of a soccer ball is affected becauseif it is bigger then it wont bounce has high because there is more air and more room inside.

to play downball you throw a ball of any size at a wall and when it bounces off you hit it agan and again and so on except when you have more than one player you yake it in turns

Most games (i.e. High School and Adult) are played with a size 5 ball, but a size 4 ball is also suitable, especially for an 8 year old

The size of the regulation soccer ball used by adults and teenagers is the Size "5" Ball. It is the official size of ball used by FIFA.

No effect since they are of same size but different material thus system will remain unchanged

it round about the size of a beach ball! its round about the size of a beach ball!!!!!!!! its almost of about golf ball

It is two times the size of a soccer ball.
