it is my understanding that a tennis ball has more mass compared to a ping pong ball. if something has a larger mass it can carry a larger amount of energy and the more energy it has the further it goes.

The golf ball has more mass. Mass is proportional to weight (Newton's 2nd law) and the golf ball weighs more than the ping pong ball, thus the golf ball has more mass.

Which has more matter a ping pong ball or golf ball?

You know, I really don't know. But I can tell you how to find out. Place water in a bowl and add the golf ball. If it sinks, it's more dense, as it can't displace enough water to cause upthrust. Do it carefully and measure the volume of water displaced, then weigh the dry ball and divide the grams by the cubic cm to get the density. Easy.

What ball bounces higher a basketball or rubber ball?

It would depend on what you bounce them on and what material the bouncy ball is made of. Most surfaces and materials would mean the bouncy ball goes higher, but a few could result in the golf ball being better.


Why is it harder to overcome the inertia of a bowling ball than a baseball?

The only real way to answer this is to define the terms, then it should make sense. Mass - How much of something there is, and what its made of. A rock and a spunge may be the same size, but the rock has more mass. Gravity - The force of attraction between any two objects. Usually the Earth, and somthing else. Based on the masses of the two objects. Weight - The amount of force due to gravity. A rock on earth will weigh less on mars because the mass of mars is less than the mass of earth. This is also why you don't feel 'weight' between you and your cup of coffee. The masses of the two objects is much too small to be felt. This is the same thing as 'heavy,' just a different word. Inertia - Refers to how much energy you need to get an object moving. The more mass an object has, the more inertia it has. This is totally independent from gravity or weight. With those definitions, you should be able to figure it out. Bowling balls are heavier because they have more mass, and they are heavy because of gravity. Also, bowling balls have more inertia, because they have more mass.

What is more dense golf ball or a ping pong ball and why?

A golf ball is more dense because it is heavier and has more mass.


How come a golf ball has more mass than ping pong ball?

Because the ping pong ball is hollow


Will a golf ball or a ping pong ball go the farthest?

A golf ball will fly further than a ping pong ball. The low mass/weight of a ping pong ball makes it more susceptible to air friction. This greater drag on the ball slow it down sooner than the golf ball.


What ball bounces higher golf ball or ping pong ball?

A golf ball will bounce higher. It has more mass so it is less influenced by air resistance.


What has more matter a ping pong ball or a golf ball?

Why dont equal masses of golf balls and ping-pong balls contain the same number of balls?

Because it takes more ping-pong balls to contribute any unit of mass than the number of golf balls required to contribute the same mass. This stems from the fact that one golf ball has more mass than one ping-pong ball.


Why is golf ball heavier than a ping-pong ball?

A golf ball has more density; therefore, it has more weight.


Which one has more inertia a golf ball or a ping-pong ball?

I think the golf ball has more inertia than ping pong ball, becuase of its weight. It is much heavy which result that it could stay at rest more, than a very lightweight ping pong ball.


How much more matter is in a golf ball than a ping pong ball?

That really depends but you can get a basic idea by: 1. Stab something through a ping pong ball 2. Attempt to stab something through Golf ball Tell me which has more matter? A ping ball is basically a shell on the outside of golf ball; it has no inside, and golf ball is filled inner material.
