Temperature does not affect the bounce of a rubber ball. Let's say you bounce a rubber ball on the grass. The result will be different then bouncing a rubber ball on a concrete surface. The result is different because you are using a solid, hard surface to bounce the ball with. But the temperature will not affect the bounce of a rubber ball. you can test it out for youself.

if a rubber ball is heated up it causes the molecules' energy to increase. as a result it exerts more pressure which causes it to bounce higher. heat also make the rubber a little softer so it will give the rubber ball a higher bounce.

The temperature of the ball does not affect the surrounding/outside air, but it does affect the air inside the ball.

Temperature affects natural rubber directly. In hot temperature, rubber will stretch but in cold temperature it becomes brittle and hard.

Yes, temperature affects rubber. If you freeze rubber, it will become stiff, and if you heat it, it will soften and become more flexible.

yes it does colder rubber bands tent to have more elasticity

well...according to my scientific calculations the colder the ball is the harder it will be, this makes it difficult to travel far. Although, the outside temperature of the ball does not affect the inside temperature. This means looks can be decieving.

Neither. When a rubber ball gets hot, the rubber begins to lose its elasticity. It doesn't bounce as high. When a rubber ball gets really cold, it starts to behave rather like a rock. It hardly bounces at all The temperature of highest bounce depends on exactly what the ball is made of, but it is probably not all that far from room temperature.

The colder the ball the less bounce. The warmer the ball the more bouncy it is.

Most balls in this case are made of rubber, the thicker or more dense the rubber the less the bounce

A higher temperature will excite the molecules in the ball. It then becomes slightly bigger and thus will bounce higher. A lower temp. does the opposite.

Im not a scientist but i think this might help. Heat causes rubber to expand and weaken. the pressure inside the ball caused by the amount of air is no longer contained by the spherical rubber shape and the air will push out on the rubber and cause a lump or disformation of the ball. Also if the air in the ball is heated it will expand making it less dense and slightly ligher but it not make much of a difference without being noticeable.

Temperature does affect the bounce of a ball. I know this because I did an expiremnt on the exact same question. The hotter the temperature is, the more pressure builds up inside a ball and the more bouncier it will be. The colder it is, pressure decreaces making it bounce lower than what the ball bounced at room temperature. In conclusion, the ball bounces higher when it is warmer and it bounces lower when it is colder.

Because internal pressure of a soccer ball depends on temperature. The rigidity of a ball is higher when temperature is higher. That's why you have to add pressure when it's cold outside.

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.

Probably because if its windy and you try to bounce the ball it will blow away.

Humidity really has no effect on the strength of rubber bands, but temperature does. Heat and cold affects the structure, strength, and elasticity of rubber bands.

Inside a golf ball can be many things. It could have a rubber ball, with rubber bands, and some have a cork and rubber
