# How does temperature affect the height at which a ball bounces?

###### Wiki User

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

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.

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.

Because the temperature affects the height of the tennis ball because the more heat the more the air pushes out when bounce the colder the less

100% YES! The colder it is the less it bounces and the hotter it is the more it bounces.

No, color does not affect how high a ball bounces.

A little, to the extent that a smaller (lighter) ball is fighting the pull of gravity less as it bounces upward, so it may get a little higher. But the height the ball bounces is much more dependent upon the resiliency - the "springiness" - of the rubber or rubber compound the ball is made from.

The hotter the ball is the higher it bounces. This is because the air in the ball heats up and expands. This tightens the skin and gives the ball a higher elastic potential

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 more air the rubber gets stronger and then bounces higher.

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

The higher the height the ball is dropped from, the higher the height it will bounce to.

For tennis balls, the height that a ball bounces is measured by a series of tests. Refer to the ITF link, below, for further information.

The ball becomes super charged when hot and better to play tennis with when cold

Yes, the surface affects the way the tennis ball bounces.

Certainly, try bouncing a rubber ball on the beach. For that matter, try bouncing it off the ocean.

bouncing the ball at room temperature, before heating or freezing it, and then measuring the height of the bounce.

its weight aslo effects the bounce its weight aslo effects the bounce

Yes if the ball is bigger it weighs more and the more weight the ball has the higher it will bounce but the height its dropped from also has to do with the how high it bounces Yes if the ball is bigger it weighs more and the more weight the ball has the higher it will bounce but the height its dropped from also has to do with the how high it bounces

Because of the friction between earth and ball ,between air and ball

When you hold the ball in the air,it's full of potential energy[or energy of position] When you drop the ball,the potential energy is converted to kinetic energy [or energy of motion]. As it bounces back up, the kinetic energy is converted back into potential energy. However, the ball will not return quite as high as you dropped it since some of the energy is transformed into heat and sound in the collision with the floor. If you drop the same ball on the same surface, the height it bounces back to will be the exact same relative to the height you drop the ball from. In other words, if you drop the ball and it bounces back to half the height from which you dropped it, when you drop it again from the halfway height, it will bounce a quarter of the way back. This is called the coefficient of restitution. Inflation will affect the coefficient of restitution.The next time you watch a basketball game, pay carefully attention to the referee when he receives the game ball.

the cooler temp. causes the rubber content to shrink and become more of a solid state which in turn is not as flexible.

As the ball warms up, it possesses more bounce. Therefore, it bounces higher. Squash balls are the same.
