The balls bounce because gravity is what pulls the falling ball towards the ground! As it falls the ball gains energy from its movement

No medicine balls do not bounce unless you throw them on a trampoline.

small balls will bounce higher because they have closer particles

They are hollow rubber balls. Hope this helps!

Because balls are made of rubber, and dogs are not.

If you open a new can of tennis balls and leave them in the can without using them, it can take a week for the tennis balls to have a significant loss in their bounce. If you are using tennis balls daily, then it can be a matter of a couple of weeks to around three weeks until the tennis balls lose their bounce completely.

Rubber helps Tennis Balls bounce better. If you get the kind of tennis balls with a very solid and not hollow rubber, it won't bounce. If it's hollow it will bounce way better. How could tennis balls not bounce without rubber? Tennis balls are made of rubber because it helps it bounce. This may sound silly, but how could a tennis ball bounce without being made of rubber? Tennis balls need rubber so that when they come into contact with the ground they do not burst or crack. It will dent slightly and go back to its original form. This is an advantage to a tennis ball being made out of rubber. so it can bounce.

yes because the more the air the higher the ball will bounce and the less the air and the lower the balls will bounce

User Avatar

If the balls weight is heavy it will not bounce as high but if the ball is lighter it will have more of a Chance to bounce higher.

I believe the difference in the two balls is the bounce.

So you can bounce them and control them

depends on the the surface

Some balls can bounce on water. It is known that all balls can float on water due to the amount of air they have inside. No, balls do not bounce on water, they may move/jump from force, but this is not really bouncing. Think of it this way, the lighter the ball the easier to move, hope that helps!

Balls do not jump my friend , they bounce. The effect of this bounce depends on how hard the user threw the ball , and how hard the ball itself is. E.G - If it was Low on air , it wouldn't bounce far. E.G.2 - It was hard and had lots of ait inside , it would bounce quite a bit.

Both balls can bounce on grass. don't believe me. try it on your own

The ball is stop by soft surfaces,therefore it won't bounce as much.

User Avatar

Different surfaces will absorb different amounts of the balls energy

Given the same ball manufacturer and product, warm tennis balls will bounce higher than cold ones. However, there are specially made tennis balls that will bounce equally high for a given environment, whether it be in low or high altitudes, temperatures, humidity, court surfaces, etc.
