# How does temperature affect the height that a dropped ball bounces?

###### Wiki User

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

a ball can never bounce over the height from which it was bounced unless u aplly a force. 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 one; 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. weight also affect the bounce height.

Purple There is no way to determine this if you don't know the height the ball is being dropped from

when there is more moisture in the air, it is warmer and thicker. when there is less moisture in the air it is cooler and thinner. so if it is cooler temperature then it will drop faster.

Gravity, air resistance, the material of the ball, and the height from which it was dropped initially.

The more air the rubber gets stronger and then bounces higher.

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.

Gravity pulls it back to earth. The gravitational pull isn't strong enough to keep the ball from bouncing but it can limit the height.

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 height to which a ball will bounce depends on the height from which it is dropped, what the ball is made out of (and if it is inflated, what the pressure is), and what the surface it bounces from is made out of. The radius of the ball doesn't really matter, if you are measuring the height of the ball from the bottom of the ball to the ground.

Yes. Under ideal circumstances - no air resistance, elastic collision (i.e., perfect bounce), the ball should bounce back to the same height from which it was dropped, due to conservation of energy. In practice, some energy is always lost, both due to air resistance and to a non-perfect bounce.

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.
