Because when something is not inflated fully then it is partially flat. Which will affect its ability to bounce

will a basketball or a tennis ball bounce higher with more air?

yes it will imangine a flat basketball will it bounce? not at all.

Yes they do bounce higher because their is more air in the ball that is filled up more!

Yes. More air in the basketball will make it bounce higher. Yes. Replacing the air with even a lighter gasses, such as helium, results in a higher bounce. It follows that, removing air or using heavier gasses to inflate a ball will result in a lower bounce. YES. Adding more air to the ball lessens the particles in the ball to bounce around. Putting more air in a basket ball will definitely make it bounce higher. If you put light gasses in it like helium then it will bounce even higher. If you take air out of it, it will bounce lower.After a while of putting air in a basketball it starts to bounce lower.

i know that a basketball will because if it has nothing in it, it won't bounce. right? but when you put more helium in, it will bounce high. but if you put to much in it, it might explode!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Helium will make a basketball bounce higher because when it is put into the basketball the air particles move faster and faster causing the basketball to bounce higher.

If you mean OUTSIDE the basketball, then no. If you mean INSIDE the basketball, then yes.

Yes The More Air The Higher The Bounce. Yes because the air gets pushed from the bottom and it has to bring the air back up. So yes it does!

it will bounce higher but it wuld probly cause it to bust...

A basketball need a lot of air because if it does not have any air how can it bounce.

The more air pressure within a basketball, the more capable it is to bounce efficiently, rather than a basketball with little air pressure.

the ball wont bounce high enough for you to bounce it.

Yes, it does with out air pressure the basketball will not bounce high as it's supposed to. It might also not bounce at all.

Answer Yes. A basketball with no air will not bounce as much as a basketball with the right amount of air .

yess because it couldn't bounce if it didn't have air.

Because, you see, the basketball is filled with AIR. Which makes it bounce.

it will bounce higher if there is more air. ex. Flat basketball- being flat, the ball will just hit the floor and will be pressed inwards on the spot it landed pumped basketball- being full of air, the ball hits the ground and like a flat basketball is pressed inwards. but because there's air in it, the air will make the ball retain its shape and bounce.

A basketball needs to be filled with air because if you didn't it wouldn't bounce.

The more air the higher it will bounce, the less air the lower it will bounce assuming the exact same amount of force is applied in each case. You do not want a ball that bounces too easily or one that is hard to make bounce. The reason it bounces higher with more air is because the outer cover is drawn tighter when more air is applied internally. The tighter the cover the higher it will bounce because it has more spring to it.

because of convection currents and the warm air rises and the cold air sinks down causing the basketball to not bounce as high

The leather is put on the basketball for grip, wear and tear, and consistency. The bounce of the ball comes from the rubber bladder that the leather is surrounding. Air pressure and the quality of the ball effect it's bounce more than the leather.
