No, the inertia of a Bowling ball is greater than that of a Golf ball. Inertia is directly related to an object's mass, so the heavier the object, the greater its inertia. The mass of a bowling ball is much larger than that of a golf ball, resulting in greater inertia.

### If you throw a ping pong ball and a golf ball with the same force which one will go the farthest Why?

a golf ball is heavier

### If a golf ball and a bowling ball are rolled toward each other when they collide and the bowling ball stops how does the golf balls speed compare with the bowling balls speed?

the golf ball stopped but the bowling ball keep rolling due to their different size and weight.as we know bowling ball is bigger in size as well as weight so it will face more fictin force and stops early as compare to golf ball when they collide and at the same time bowling ball poshes the golf ball back.so the golf ball stops and the golf ball keeps rolling.

### Compare the speed of a moving golf ball with the speed of a moving bowling ball if both balls have the same amount of momentum?

If both balls have the same momentum, then the speed of the golf ball will be faster compared to the speed of the bowling ball. This is because the golf ball has less mass than the bowling ball, so it needs to move at a higher speed to have the same momentum.

### Will a bowling ball or a golf ball hit the ground first the same speed?

### Will a bowling ball or a golf ball hit the ground first from two rooms high?

If air resistance can be ignored (and it probably can from 2 rooms high) then both the bowling ball and golf ball will hit the floor at the same time. Although the bowling ball is harder to get moving than than the golf ball (it has more mass), the bowling ball also has a greater force pulling it down than the golf ball (as measured by its weight). The result is that both objects have the same acceleration.

### Which has more inertia a bowling ball or beach ball?

A bowling ball has more inertia than a beach ball. Inertia is the resistance of an object to change its state of motion, and it is directly related to an object's mass. Since a bowling ball is heavier and has more mass than a beach ball, it has more inertia.

### Which one would go faster with the same kinectic energy bowling ball or a golf ball?

The golf ball would go faster because it has less mass compared to the bowling ball but the same kinetic energy. The kinetic energy of an object is determined by both its mass and its velocity, so the lighter golf ball would be able to achieve a higher velocity with the same amount of kinetic energy as the heavier bowling ball.

### Will a bowling ball or golf ball hit the ground first?

The bowling ball will hit the ground first because it has more mass than the golf ball, so it experiences a greater force of gravity pulling it downward. This causes the bowling ball to accelerate more quickly than the golf ball, making it reach the ground sooner.

### It is harder to stop a rolling bowling ball than a rolling ping pong ball when both are rolling at the same velocity. this is an example of?

This is an example of inertia, specifically the difference in inertia between the two objects due to their mass. The bowling ball has more mass, so it has more inertia and requires more force to stop its motion compared to the ping pong ball.

### Does a bowling ball on earth have more inertia than one on the moon?

No, a bowling ball (or any other object) has exactly the same inertial mass no matter where it is (its actual inertia will, of course, depend upon its velocity as well as its inertial mass). Weight changes on the moon, but inertia doesn't.

### If a bowling ball and a golf ball are moving at the same velocity which one would have more momentum why brainly?

The bowling ball would have more momentum because it has more mass than the golf ball. Momentum is calculated as the product of an object's mass and velocity, so a heavier object moving at the same velocity will have more momentum.
