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.

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

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

a frozen bouncy ball will not bounce higher or lower than an unfrozen one it will shatter

yes, if its a bouncy ball

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.

Bouncy balls are a good source of entertainment, everyone wants to get theirs the highest. How high a bouncy ball can bounce is dependent on the force and the angle behind the bounce.

a theory that there was a big bounce of a bouncy ball....

yes but not as much as a soild surface becuase the bouncy house absorbs most of the force force by the ball

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

It would depend on what you bounce them on and what material the bouncy ball is made of. Most surfaces and materials would mean the bouncy ball goes higher, but a few could result in the golf ball being better.

Yes because if it's too hot the ball would melt and not bounce.

it makes it not bounce as high

The higher the boiuncy ball is the more times if u do it with a small bouncy ball but if you do it with a big bouncy ball it will stay the same ever time u go up in height. The smaller the bouncy ball the more times it will bounce at a higher drop-height but if you try it with a big bounce ball it will still the same number of times each time you go up in inches

When the ball is hot, the molecules move faster and they act as a spring causing the ball to bounce higher.

Yes. If it is colder the ball will bounce less than when it is warmer.

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.

Yeah, so temperature simply affect the bounce. That's just the way it is Answer: the temperature of the ground affects how solid the ground is. If you compare bouncing a ball on cement (frozen ground-great bounce!) to bouncing it on sand (mud-no bounce) or a padded rug (grass-like-some bounce) you can understand how this works.

The factors that affect the bounce of a dropped ball include...... the height from which it is dropped; the force applied to it, if any, when dropped; the acceleration of gravity, which is different depending upon what planet you're on ; the elasticity of the ball; the density of the atmosphere, which affects "air resistance"; and the rigidity and elasticity of the surface on which the ball bounces.

* Probably a regular rubber bouncy ball or a fully pumped basketball.

Both do. A golf ball can bounce quite a ways if struck hard and hits a hard object , like a tree.

because light ball have more air in them so they bounce higher

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.
