If you were bouncing them both, a basketball would bounce higher.

If a volleyball was not round, the bounce would be affected. If a volleyball were oblong, it wouldn't bounce correctly and the direction of the bounce would be hard to control.

it depends how hard the ball hits the ground a basketball would deffinetly bounce higher than a tennis ball

The basketball at room temperature has more energy, because cold is just the absence of energy. The ball that is frozen would not bounce as high because it is wanting to stay in that shape, and has less time to react.

If a basketball were not hollow, it would be extremely heavy and would not bounce.

Soccer balls. It would depend how high they came down from. As soccer balls are kicked high into the air, they probably bounce higher than basketballs which are just thrown.

No,of course not, the friction between the basketball and the grass would make the ball bounce less.

A tennis ball will bounce the highest because it is smaller. The smaller amount of mass that it has the more it will bounce and the higher it would get. For example, when you put air into a ball the more mass it builds up but, when the ball is flat it would not bounce.

That depends upn the playing surface. In beach volleyball, you don't get any bouncing because sand absorbs the energy of the ball's impact. But on a hard surface, yes, volleyballs bounce. Volleyballs have to bounce in order for them to be used in volleyball. What would happen if a volleyball didn't bounce on a forearm pass? Think about it.

Yes it does . Lower psi than needed to completely fill the ball would make it bounce less. More would makeitbounce a bit higher . But only to a certain point

I would say yes but it all depends on how much air is in the basketball in question.

Yes the Temperature does effect the bounce of a basketball. If your playing outside in the cold, the ball will not bounce as high as it would inside a gym. If the Temperature is pretty decent then the ball will bounce how its supposed to.Alright!!!!

How is this chemistry.... but do it however you would like to.

It all depends on how much air there is inside, where you bounce it, and how you bounce it. Well if there were same amount of air, bounced on the same surface and with the same power, a rubber ball would bounce higher. But that doesn't mean a rubber basketball is simply better. People certainly would choose a leather basketball, because it looks better and has a better quality, and can last longer if played indoors. If you were looking for which is better, I would say that's totally upto you, whether you play indoors (a leather ball would be heaps better), or outdoors (a rubber ball is much better in this case). But if you were looking for which bounced higher, it is definitely rubber. This is because a rubber cover is harder than a leath covering. When something is harder, this allows to put more pressure when the ball hits the floor. This causes the ball to bounce higher.

The height of the bounce depends on the speed with which it strikes the ground. The harder you throw it down, the higher it will bounce. Since a basketball is a real physical object, there's a practical limit here: at some point, it will explode rather than bounce. However, short of getting a bunch of basketballs and testing them to destruction, it's hard to tell what that limit would be.

No, that would be called double dribble and yes if you receive the ball, stop then you can bounce.

ok so the men's basketball is heavier obviously while the girls is a little bit lighter. Therefore the heavier of the ball the more muscel you need to make it go higher. This shows the girls basketball would be easier to bounce high.

Since I just did this, (LOL) I would have to say that it mosyley depends o the amount of air that is pumped into each of them. ...Your welcome... ~M.salling1
