Temperature does not affect the bounce of a rubber ball. Let's say you bounce a rubber ball on the grass. The result will be different then bouncing a rubber ball on a concrete surface. The result is different because you are using a solid, hard surface to bounce the ball with. But the temperature will not affect the bounce of a rubber ball. you can test it out for youself.

Yes. If it is colder the ball will bounce less than when it is warmer.

Yeah, so temperature simply affect the bounce. That's just the way it is Answer: the temperature of the ground affects how solid the ground is. If you compare bouncing a ball on cement (frozen ground-great bounce!) to bouncing it on sand (mud-no bounce) or a padded rug (grass-like-some bounce) you can understand how this works.

Probably because if its windy and you try to bounce the ball it will blow away.

Yes because if it's too hot the ball would melt and not bounce.

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.

Because the temprature is responsible for the pressure inside the ball.

When the ball is hot, the molecules move faster and they act as a spring causing the ball to bounce higher.

Temperature does affect the bounce of a ball. I know this because I did an expiremnt on the exact same question. The hotter the temperature is, the more pressure builds up inside a ball and the more bouncier it will be. The colder it is, pressure decreaces making it bounce lower than what the ball bounced at room temperature. In conclusion, the ball bounces higher when it is warmer and it bounces lower when it is colder.

Yes, temperature affects the pressure of the air and when the pressure outside the ball is lower, the pressure inside will be greater, thus making it bounce better.

The heat sometimes exspands the ball because it is made of ruber

No, a room temperature ball does not bounce higher than a heated tennis ball. In fact, the heated tennis ball will bounce higher than its room temperature counterpart. This is because tennis balls rely on a high pressure internal pocket of air for their bounce. Heating the tennis ball would increase the pressure of the air inside the ball (pressure varies as temperature) which would cause the tennis ball to bounce higher. This holds (albeit for different reasons) for most solid balls as well, such as baseballs.

It is better to bounce a netball or anything in warm weather why because it is warmer and it seams to bounce higher and than when it is cold it seams to bounce less!! hope this helps with your homework.!

The colder the ball the less bounce. The warmer the ball the more bouncy it is.

Yes. 'Warm' increases the elasticity. Cold decreases the elasticity. Extreme cold can make the substances brittle and not bounce at all.

Cold air is more dense which is making the ball bounce higher, warm air is less dense which is making the ball bounce less higher.

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

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!!!!

If you bounce a hot ball, then it will bounce higher because heat will cause the air molecules to move faster and bounce higher while the cold slows them down eventually causing deflation over time and it won't bounce as high

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.
