It depends on how hard you throw/hit the ball. On average though, it is the golf ball.

Kinetic energy is a function of mass and velocity. Therefore, an object with more mass, such as a bowling ball, would have to go slower than an object with less mass, such as a golf ball. So, if given the same amount of kinetic energy, a bowling ball will go faster than a golf ball, because it has more mass.

momentum=velocity x mass say a golf ball weighs 1 pound and the bowling ball weighs 5 pounds the golf ball would have to be moving 5 times faster than the bowling ball to have the same momentum

the golf ball stopped but the bowling ball keep rolling due to their different size and weight.as we know bowling ball is bigger in size as well as weight so it will face more fictin force and stops early as compare to golf ball when they collide and at the same time bowling ball poshes the golf ball back.so the golf ball stops and the golf ball keeps rolling.

Well if you throw a bowling ball and a golf ball, which is gonna go faster?

Probably the bowling bowl. Momentum is mass x velocity and a bowling ball is generally heavier than a golf ball.

A bowling ball has more mass and is pulled by gravity, creating more resistance than a golf ball.

The force of the bowling ball colliding with the golf ball causes the golf ball to be redirected in an elastic collision. How fast either travels depends on the friction of the surface and the angle of contact with the bowling ball.Comparative Masses and EnergyIn the collision between a golf ball and a bowling ball, the fact that the bowling ball continues to move (although possibly changed in direction) is a function of the comparative masses of the two. The bowling ball is much more massive, so at normal velocities its kinetic energy exceeds the kinetic energy of the golf ball. In order to "stop" the bowling ball, the golf ball would have to make a perfectly aimed collision, and have a much higher velocity. Quantitatively, the velocity of the golf ball would have to be the inverse ratio of the ratio of the masses of the two balls, so that the kinetic energy (mass times velocity) is equal and in the opposite direction.Example : Golf ball at 45 g, ten pound bowling ball at 4500 g -- the golf ball would have to move at 100 times the velocity of the bowling ball to counteract its kinetic energy. If the bowling ball rolls at 2 m/sec, the golf ball would have to travel at more than 200 m/sec (720 kph or 447 mph), about 3 times a ball's normal velocity off the face of a golf club.

The answer depends on their relative speeds. Assuming that they are going at the same speed, a bowling ball would have more momentum than a golf ball.

If air resistance can be ignored (and it probably can from 2 rooms high) then both the bowling ball and golf ball will hit the floor at the same time. Although the bowling ball is harder to get moving than than the golf ball (it has more mass), the bowling ball also has a greater force pulling it down than the golf ball (as measured by its weight). The result is that both objects have the same acceleration.

Yes, no, maybe. It depends on how fast they're moving. At the same speed, a bowling ball has much more kinetic energy than a golf ball.

A golf ball falls faster because it's heavier than a ping pong ball.

A football and a golf ball are both faster than a book, even if kicked with the same force. Between a football and a golf ball the winner will be the golf ball, because the football has much more drag.

The one with the smaller mass (which is also the one with the smaller weight) would have to move faster, to compensate for the fact that it has less mass.

I say a golf ball, but it depends on how high you throw them.

The kinetic energy depends on both the velocity and the mass of the object. Kinetic energy = (1/2) x mass x velocity2. If a bowling ball and a golf ball are moving at the same velocity, then the bowling ball, being more massive, will have the greater amount of kinetic energy. However, bowling balls rarely move as fast as golf balls, so the full calculation is required for the specific situation of interest.

In deep space, free of other gravitational influences, theoretically, yes. All objects with mass have "gravity" -- as long as the bowling ball contains more mass, there ought to be a particular velocity at which a golf ball would orbit it.
