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.

There are a few reasons why a baseball's temperature affect it's bounce. The higher the heat the faster the molecules move.

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.

i am not sure but when it gets hot balls tend to expand and preforme like flat balls but when its cold balls usually contract and get tighter and bounce higher.

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!

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.

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

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.

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

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

rain can sometimes get into the seams of the ball and break it apart

Weight affects a balls bounce Size affects the weight and the radius affects the size The most important factor is what material the ball is made from.

Yes. My balls swing to the left when the wind is off the sea, but to the right when the wind changes. I believe the temperature changes may be somewhat to blame.

No medicine balls do not bounce unless you throw them on a trampoline.

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

There is no doubt any rubber ball will have an optimum "bounce" temperature and it is unlikely this is room temperature. it could in fact be cooler. It is well known squash balls are warmed up before being used, so it is likely warming bouncy balls up will make them bounce more.

small balls will bounce higher because they have closer particles

when tennis balls get wet they get heavy and the bigger it is the less bounce.

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.

Because the temprature is responsible for the pressure inside the ball.
