Simply... the valve is a one way valve that lets in air one way but does not let air out. It it basically a hole with a flap on the inside. The flap closes when pressure is pushing out but opens when pressure is pushing in.. like when you put in the pump nozzle.

Basketball players can appear to hang in the air when they hold onto the rim of the basket. This is a move that is popular among college basketball players, and professional basketball players.

The air in a basketball lets the basketball bounce.

if you are asking about the air valve on the tire to add/let out air then it is a schrader valve or an American valve

As air fills the basketball, the pressure expands outward to make the outside of the ball feel harder. The valve on the outside of the ball allows the pump to put air in prevents air from escaping.

It is called the valve stem and is marked with an arrow. Hold it down until enough air gets out.

At Loch Ness, click the left side of the truck, then click and hold the valve stem (arrow) until enough air escapes.

Hold the valve stem until enough air has gotten out of the tire.

The shocks have a air valve just like a tire valve, just take the cap off the valve and depress the insert in the valve to let air out.

Answer Yes. A basketball with no air will not bounce as much as a basketball with the right amount of air .

A basketball need a lot of air because if it does not have any air how can it bounce.

to empty the one on the main tuning slide, just hold the lever, or push the button, depending on the kind of spit valve you have, and blow air into the trumpet. To empty the one on the third valve slide press all three valves down, and push the lever/button on the spit valve, and blow air.

An NBA basketball is 29.5 to 29.875 inches around. It is supposed to weigh about 22 ounces. Internally, there is a rubber bladder that is able to hold air.

As much as might be trapped between the threads and core. Baseballs are not air filled like a volleyball or basketball. This is much like asking "How much air does a hockey puck hold?"

Show me where that air valve control valve is located on a 2000 navigator

At Loch Ness, the driver's trailer is too high to go under the bridge. Let some air out of the tires to lower it. Click on the left tire, then click and hold the valve stem until enough air gets out.

The answer depends on the pressure when the air is let out of the basketball.

The part where you hold on to the horn is the valve casing. The valves are inside of that.
