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.

it makes it not bounce as high

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

Yes the Temperature does effect the bounce of a basketball. If your playing outside in the cold, the ball will not bounce as high as it would inside a gym. If the Temperature is pretty decent then the ball will bounce how its supposed to.Alright!!!!

Yes, temperature affects the pressure of the air and when the pressure outside the ball is lower, the pressure inside will be greater, thus making it bounce better.

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

Color does not affect the bounce. Purple tennis balls bounce as high as green and yellow tennis balls. It really depends on the type of ball.

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 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.

No, a room temperature ball does not bounce higher than a heated tennis ball. In fact, the heated tennis ball will bounce higher than its room temperature counterpart. This is because tennis balls rely on a high pressure internal pocket of air for their bounce. Heating the tennis ball would increase the pressure of the air inside the ball (pressure varies as temperature) which would cause the tennis ball to bounce higher. This holds (albeit for different reasons) for most solid balls as well, such as baseballs.

bounce a ball and you'll find out

Think of it like this, if you pick up a ball that you drop on the floor, and squeeze that ball, if it is made out of a material like rubber, it is easy to squeeze, therefor it will bounce high. If the ball is made out of steel, then I personaly could not be able to squeeze it and it won't bounce very high or not bounce at all.

the ball bounce high cause of the air in the ball If there is more air pressure in the ball it will bounce higher likewise if there is less air pressure it will bounce lower. This could be done by exposing the ball in different temperatures. If the ball gets hotter it will bounce higher and if gets colder it will bounce lower.

how High will a basket ball bounce if it has oxygen in it

Yes the bounce of the ball affects the distance it can cover. As the ball bounces, the gravitational force acts on it such that it slows the movement of the ball. High bounce= low trajectory and low bounce=high trajectory.

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.

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

If the balls weight is heavy it will not bounce as high but if the ball is lighter it will have more of a Chance to bounce higher.

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

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.

Yes. Let's say it bounces on cement. It bounces high and hits the surface perfectly. However, if you were to bounce it on something like carpet, it would either bounce less high, or not bounce at all. This would be due to the fact that the carpet has padding so the ball would not be able to push off of a hard surface because carpet isn't usually hard.

yes because the more the air the higher the ball will bounce and the less the air and the lower the balls will bounce

it should bounce high enough to get over the net

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