# Does the temperature of a ball affect how high it bounces?

###### Wiki User

If you bounce a hot ball, then it will bounce higher because heat will cause the air molecules to move faster and bounce higher while the cold slows them down eventually causing deflation over time and it won't bounce as high

No, color does not affect how high a ball bounces.

100% YES! The colder it is the less it bounces and the hotter it is the more it bounces.

The mocules for cold air are slower so it makes it not bounce as high and the normal temperature bounces higher.

Temperature plays a role in how high a ball bounces. The colder it is, the less the ball compresses when bounces which produces less height when bounced. The warmer it is, the more the ball will compress which will in turn cause it to bounce higher.

The hotter the ball is the higher it bounces. This is because the air in the ball heats up and expands. This tightens the skin and gives the ball a higher elastic potential

The ball becomes super charged when hot and better to play tennis with when cold

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 the ball warms up, it possesses more bounce. Therefore, it bounces higher. Squash balls are the same.

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

Composition/density of the ball, gravity, and the hardness of the surface against which it was thrown.

This question does not specify the object you want to know the temperature of and so cannot be answered.

Yes because of the balls energy, potential that turns into kinetic that makes a ball bounce.

If a ball is more deflated it provides more resistance for the energy to transfer into upwards motion

yes,it probably effects as a stumper ball bounces less as compared to a crazy ball.

Yes. Energy absorbed by the surface, is energy that is not available for the bounce.

Well yes, if its hot the ball bounces high... so if its cold the ball is more flat. ~Answered by a Pro Tennis Player~ A warmer environment will expand the air inside an inflatable ball making it bouncier. A warmer temperature may also make the ball surface more pliant and bouncier.

No, i myself have done the experiment and found that room temperature ball bounce as high as frozen and hot balls.A SMALL AMOUT COS THE RUBBER WILL CHANGE....i h8 n0000bz

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

bouncing the ball at room temperature, before heating or freezing it, and then measuring the height of the bounce.

Talking on the likeness of theory it is likely that different balls hence diffence in the matrial it is made of so yes it will affect the bounce

A rubber ball bounces depending on how high its dropped from and what type of surface it hits.
