Yes. 'Warm' increases the elasticity. Cold decreases the elasticity. Extreme cold can make the substances brittle and not bounce at all.

When the ball is at a low temperature, the molecules are not flexible and bounce only to a small height. On the other hand, if the ball is warm or at a higher temperature, it will bounce longer heights.

Yes, this is because when the tennis ball is in a heated environment warm air enters through the ball and because the temperature gets higher, the tennis ball would get bigger. When the tennis ball is bigger it would bounce higher.

Cold air is more dense which is making the ball bounce higher, warm air is less dense which is making the ball bounce less higher.

the ball is harder in the cold weather making it less bouncy but in warm weather the ball is less stiff and more bouncy.

It is better to bounce a netball or anything in warm weather why because it is warmer and it seams to bounce higher and than when it is cold it seams to bounce less!! hope this helps with your homework.!

bounce a ball and you'll find out

Yes it will effect the rebound height. It tends to bounce higher in a warm temperature because the molecules speed up and strike the inner core more and faster so this makes it bounce higher!

Technically, yes it does. When something gets cold, (heat) energy is low inside the ball. When it is warm, more energy is inside the ball. The more the energy, the more the molecules creating the ball are shaking/ vibrating. This creates friction, therefore creating the heat you feel within the ball. So when a warm ball gets bounced, the energy transfer between the ball and the surface your bouncing it on is somewhat high. The higher the energy transfer, the higher the reaction (in this case the reaction is the bounce). When you bounce a cold ball, not only are the molecules more tightly packed (it feels somewhat harder), there is less of an energy transfer, therefore less bounce. So, in theory, a warm ball should bounce higher. I don't know how big the difference is, but the answer is yes, the temperature does effect a ball's bounce.

yes Im sure it would, not necessarily warm air, but changes in pressure (air) as Im sure I can notice with my bike tyres!

Tennis balls are affected by the environment in a few ways. The environment can affect how it bounces. Warm air makes the ball expand causing it to have a higher bounce. Cold air makes the ball contract and can make it harder to bounce.

Warm currents have a very obvious affect on the temperature that surrounds it. Warm currents will warm the area around the currents.

it is a warm color, therefore it affects warm temperature. it is a warm color, therefore it affects warm temperature.

If the weather is cold the ball may harden and become stiff, this makes the ball have less pop and results in a slower playing ball. If the weather is warm then the ball will become more elastic and bounce higher. If the ball is sat outside for extended periods of time the constant cooling and warming of the ball will cause the rubber to lose its form and become flat with no bounce.

The atoms in the air inside the ball are continuously bouncing around. When temperatures become warm those atoms bounce faster, but when it becomes cold, atoms slow down making the ball not bounce as high.

Q: How does temperature affect the distance that a golf ball will travel?A: Golf balls are made from a solid or liquid core with tightly-wound materials, and require a certain amount of elasticity in order to release kinetic energy during a collision (bounce). The property of elasticity is affected by temperature. Warm balls have a greater ability to flex during a collision, thereby recovering more kinetic energy than golf balls at colder temperatures. This scientific principle is called the coefficient of restitution. Simply put, the ball's 'bounciness' is dependent on the elasticity of the materials, and the bouncier the ball, the farther it will travel when struck by a golf club.

In the nature of science the ball would bounce higher whens its warmer because the air wont be so thick. That means the ball woukld get more air

if its cold its not going to bonce high if its warm its okay

No, it would bounce better on warm days because heat makes things exspand and cold makes thing shrink

As cold as they can get. If they are warm, they can bounce. Keeping them cold keeps them from bouncing. The inability to bounce plays as a constant for all hockey teams and leagues.

The sperm keeps it temperature because the ball sack will lower when the body temperature is to warm for the sperm. Although if the air is to cold the ball sack will higher closer to the body and warm up the cold sperms.

as temperature increases, the atoms and particles in the balloon begin to move faster and bounce off the walls, making the balloon expand in all directions.

Well, cold rubber balls do bounce, but warm rubber balls bounce better because when a cold rubber ball hits the floor, it generates heat instead of a rebound effect because the molecules are so close together that they collide with each other.

Under the same impact force, a solid golf ball will have a longer overall distance in warm weather than in cold weather. That's why there is a business for golf ball warmer.

Yes temperature does effect how far the ball will travel. The colder the temp, the colder the air inside the ball is and the colder the leather of the ball is. This causes the ball to be coming harder and more stiff and will not travel as far as a ball on a warm summer day. You wont loose a lot of distance and I am not sure of the acutal measurements but it was something like for every 10 degrees cooler it is, the ball will travel a couple yards less than it would if it was warm.

A warm basball would travel further since the molecules in the ball are moving faster than if it was colder. Although this change of temperature would be very insignificant in everyday life. There would be a greeter affect in the distance if the bat was warm compared to the ball being warm. So if you wan't the ball to travel far have a warm bat and then it will have a lot of 'pop'. If you hit it with a bat, a warm ball will go further. The molecules in the ball are held together less tightly and are more bouncy, so instead of work being done by vibrating the bat, all energy is transferred into the ball.
