How does the height of a ball dropped affect the number of bounces it will make?

its weight aslo effects the bounce its weight aslo effects the bounce


What is a drop height in physics?

That refers to the height from which something is dropped.


Does the surface a ball bounces on effect the height of the bounce?

yes it does, that's why basketball players play on hardwood courts because of the smooth bouncing. it would be a lot harder to bounjce it on grass!


A ball is dropped from 10 feet above the ground.It hits the ground and bounces up half as high as it fellThis is true for each successive bounce.What height does the ball reach on the fourth bounce?

1.75 ft


What thing will affect the height of a bounce of a ball?

The bouciness (if that's a word) of the ball, and the height you drop it from. The more bouncy the ball is, the higher it bounces, and the higher you drop it from, the higher it bounces. The higher the ball is when it is dropped, the more gravitational pull it will have on it. Also the material it is made of makes a difference, for example a bowling ball which is made of a hard material would not bounce as high as a rubber ball; this is because the rubber has more give in it, so has more potential to ping back into its original shape, creating kinetic (moving) energy which bounces it back up in the air again. Then when the ball bounces back up, it will not fall from as high a distance as before, therefore each time it bounces back up it has less and less gravitational energy, eventually bringing it to a halt on the floor.</H5> <P>Hope this helps.</P>

Does size effect how high a ball bounces?

Yes if the ball is bigger it weighs more and the more weight the ball has the higher it will bounce but the height its dropped from also has to do with the how high it bounces Yes if the ball is bigger it weighs more and the more weight the ball has the higher it will bounce but the height its dropped from also has to do with the how high it bounces

Purple There is no way to determine this if you don't know the height the ball is being dropped from


A ball dropped from a height of 10 meters and bounces up to a height of 7 meters Assuming that the height before each bounce remain in the same ratio after how many bounces will the ball be below 2?

After the 5th bounce, it peaks at 0.168 meter. Nice problem.

Does the height from which a ball is dropped affect how high it bounces?

Yes because of the balls energy, potential that turns into kinetic that makes a ball bounce.


Why does a ball never bounces back to the same height that it was dropped from?

Gravity pulls it back to earth. The gravitational pull isn't strong enough to keep the ball from bouncing but it can limit the height.


A ball is dropped from a height of 128 meters Each time the all bounces to half of its previous height After one bounce the ball readches a height of 64 meters How high did the ball reach after the 7?

1 metre


If a basketball is properly inflated, it should rebound after bouncing on the ground to about one-Half the height from which it was dropped. If the ball is dropped from 20 feet, how high will it bounce back after the sixth bounce?

75%


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.


When a ball is dropped and bounces back to its original height what kind of collision is happening between the ball and the ground?

Since no energy was lost, we can conclude that it was an elastic collision.
