The inside of a basketball is made of rubber, and the outside is made of leather or synthetic leather. Its physical properties are that it is hollow and spherical when inflated.

Basketball is made with different materials that wont break for example a baketball hitting a backborad.

I'm not sure be sure to ask someone else but I know it is made from a synthetic material

Basketball is one of the most popular sports in the world. The nets for basketball are typically made of heavyweight nylon or high density polymer fabric.

The Basketball is made out of a material that allows he ball to bounce while keeping it light enough to carry and shoot.

A volleyball, because it is made of material that will bounce well and is lighter than a basketball.

magnet where not made they were discovered,900 years ago lodstone was discovered it contain special properties to attract other material such as magnetic material

Some physical properties of a shirt would be the color, the roughness of the material it's made of, and how tough it is to tear.

The magnetic properties of a material depend on its atomic structure.

The elasticity of the material that the basketball is made of will effect the strength of the bounce. The material's elasticity is the ability of the material to go back to it's original shape after being squashed, which happens when you bounce it. So when you bounce the basketball the material is squashed, the elasticity will force the ball back up by trying to go back to it's original shape, therefore creating the bounce.

An isotropic material has properties which are independent of the direction in which they are measured whereas in an anisotropic material the properties do depend on the direction .

properties that can be measured without changing the material

the main difference is of SPELLINGS!. material science is knowing the basic knowledge about materials i.e their properties. and material engineering is that, by knowing the properties of a particular material you design or engineer that material for desired applications.

Extensive properties depend on the amount of material present.

Each material has specific chemical properties.

All material objects have physical properties.

User Avatar

These chemical properties are different for each solid material.

What ARE material properties? Otherwise known as characteristics, these are the things that make a material useful. Mechanical properties: Ductility (elastic or plastic) Brittleness (stiffness), compression, tension, torque, shear, toughness, & hardness. Electrical properties: conductor, insulator, semiconductor Thermal properties: conductor or insulator Optical properties: transparent, translucent, reflective, opaque.

Intrinsic properties of matter are the same regardless of the amount of material present. Extrinsic properties of matter are based on the amount material present.
