# Why would a basketball at room temperature bounce higher than a frozen basketball?

234

###### Wiki User

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.

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.

the basketball will most likely bounce higher on a flat surface

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

I think both bounce the same one is just bigger then the other, actually the boys basketball bounce higher I did a basketball experiment on it the boys bounce a foot higher, It is because itr weighs more.

Technically, a frozen tennis ball will not bounce well because of the temperature. The elasticity is one of the factors in which a ball bounces and when things are colder, there isn't as much elasticity, so it will not bounce as well. Therefore, a dry ball (as long as it wasn't frozen in a container) will bounce better than a frozen one.

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

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

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

a frozen bouncy ball will not bounce higher or lower than an unfrozen one it will shatter

A rubber basketball will bounce higher than a leather basketball of equal internal pressure. The leather covering adds additional weight and is less flexible.

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

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

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

it depends if the softball is heavier than the baketball then no it will bounce lower. If a basketball is heavier than a softball it will bounce higher because of gravity

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

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.

A ping pong ball will bounce higher then a basketball when dropped at the same height. The transfer of kinetic energy is greater in the lighter ping pong ball.

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The floor type does effect the bounce on a basketball due to the kinetic energy absorbed by the floor that is why it is easier to bounce a ball higher on a basketball court than it is say on tiles and carpet court.its a godd science experiment
