Yes. Energy absorbed by the surface, is energy that is not available for the bounce.

Who would want to know does the surface affect the way the tennis ball bounces?

Tons of tennis would like to how the ball bounces on different types of court surfaces. Becuase of the surface a player will have to change his/her gameplain to fit the surface. So basically anyone playing tennis seriously.

Does temperature affect how high a ball bounces?

100% YES! The colder it is the less it bounces and the hotter it is the more it bounces.

Does the surface upon which a ball is dropped affect the height to which it bounces?

Certainly, try bouncing a rubber ball on the beach. For that matter, try bouncing it off the ocean.

What effects the bounce of a ball?

The height from which it falls, the smoothness of the surface off which it bounces and the elasticities of the ball and the surface from which it rebounds.

How is the egg hits the floor different from the basketball hits the floor?

Egg's outer surface is rigid whereas the surface of basket ball is elastic in nature. So basket ball bounces but egg gets broken when they hit the floor.

How a soccer ball bounces?

A soccer ball bounces as the air particles in them hit and apply pressure at the ball, when it hits a surface, the pressure from the particles apply a force on the ball. Thus, making it bounce.

How do different types of surface affect the way a ball bounces?

I am assuming you are talking about tennis. On a grass surface, the ball will bounce fast. On clay courts, the ball will bounce slower than on grass. On a hard court, the speed of the ball bounce will be in between clay and grass.

How does the temperature of a soccer ball affect how high the ball bounces?

The hotter the ball is the higher it bounces. This is because the air in the ball heats up and expands. This tightens the skin and gives the ball a higher elastic potential

What surface does a ball bounce best on?

the ball bounces best on a smooth,flat and hard surface

Does the surface a ball bounce on affect the bounce of a ball?

Yes. Let's say it bounces on cement. It bounces high and hits the surface perfectly. However, if you were to bounce it on something like carpet, it would either bounce less high, or not bounce at all. This would be due to the fact that the carpet has padding so the ball would not be able to push off of a hard surface because carpet isn't usually hard.

Is the bounce of a ball affected by the surface it bounces on?

Its GREATLY affected by the surface it bounces on!If you bounce it on a soft or cushioned surface like a shag carpet, the carpet will absorb a lot of the impact, and the ball will not bounce as high.On the other hand, if you bounce it on concrete, the ball's fall is not cushioned nearly as much, and as a result, bounces much higher.

What bouncy ball bounces the highest?

the type of bouncy ball that bounces the highest our golf balls but that is only on hard surface other wise it would be your standard bouncy ball out of the machines that are 50 cents(:

How high does a rubber ball bounce?

A rubber ball bounces depending on how high its dropped from and what type of surface it hits.

What type of ball bounces the highest?

No ball bounces higher than others. There are different ball for different surfaces and it depends on what surface you are on (clay, hard, or grass). The ball will bounce higher on hard then it does on clay or grass. -tennis player

Does the size of a bouncy ball affect how high it bounces?

As long as they have the same density and mass, size will not affect it

What makes a marble bounce?

It all depends on what surface it bounces on.Either the ball or the surface changes shape. A rubber ball changes it's shape, but a marble changes the shape of the surface it bounces on. And if the change is only temporary, it snaps back to it's original shape, and the ball bounces.But some energy is lost in the process, and the ball bounces lower each time.Generally a hard surface will make a hard ball bounce higher, since they hardly change shape, and they keep more of their energy. So on an ideal surface a marble would bounce higher than a rubber ball, as long as it doesn't break.Check out liquid metal: http://www.liquidmetal.com/media/ball_bounce_DSL.wmvSkrommel

Does the size of a soccer ball affect how high it will bounce?

The size of a soccer ball does not affect how high it bounces because gravity pulls down a ball at the same, no matter what size it is.

How does the weight of a ball affect how high it bounces?

yes because if it is heivgh it will bouce low

What factors affect the bounce of a dropped ball?

The factors that affect the bounce of a dropped ball include...... the height from which it is dropped; the force applied to it, if any, when dropped; the acceleration of gravity, which is different depending upon what planet you're on ; the elasticity of the ball; the density of the atmosphere, which affects "air resistance"; and the rigidity and elasticity of the surface on which the ball bounces.
