In vacuum (no air) they both fall the same rate. In air, the golf ball falls faster because air resistance slows down the very light ping pong ball

In general, a Golf ball falls faster than a ping pong ball due to its greater mass and thus higher inertia. This means that gravity has a stronger effect on the golf ball, causing it to accelerate more quickly towards the ground compared to the ping pong ball.

### What falls faster a golf ball or a table tennis ball?

The golf ball will land first. All objects fall at the same speed, but that's in a vacuum. The ping pong ball has a huge amount of drag (which is air resistance) for its weight, so it will be slowed enough for there to be a visible difference.AnswerThe golf ball will reach only a second or so before the ping pong ball. The chair will not be high enough for the ping pong ball to be considerably slowed due to air resistance.

### Which is larger golf ball or ping pong ball?

There isn't a huge difference, but a Golf ball would be marginally bigger. Golf ball sized and ping pong size are mostly used to measure hail sizes. A golf ball is bigger but not by much. Inches. 1 1/2 Ping Pong Ball Size 1 3/4 Golf Ball Size

### 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.

### Which will go higher when thrown up in the air golf ball or tennis ball?

In general, the golf ball will go higher than a ping pong ball would if we give both a good toss. This is because there is a lot less inertia in a table tennis ball owing to its light weight (low mass) compared to the golf ball. Air resistance (called "drag" by science types) will "suck" the energy out of a ping pong ball faster than a golf ball because there is less energy in the ping pong ball to begin with. There is a little bit more to this, but this is the basic "answer" for a school science question.

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

A golf ball will generally go farther than a ping pong ball when hit with the same force because of its heavier weight and streamlined design. The golf ball's dimpled surface also helps reduce drag, allowing it to travel a greater distance compared to a ping pong ball.

### What is smaller than a softball?

Ping Pong Ball / Table Tennis Golf Ball Cricket Field Hockey Lacrosse Billiards / Pool Squash Are all smaller in diameter than a baseball

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

It depends what you mean by a big balloon, otherwise I would definitely go for a golf ball.

Air resistance.

The golf ball.

### Why is a golf ball heavier than a ping-pong ball even though the balls are the same size?

The interior of a ping-pong ball is filled with air, while the interior of a golf ball is made of solid material (rubbers) that are heavier (denser) than air. Thus wile about the same size a golf ball is much heavier than a ping-pong ball.

### What is something small?

a ping-pong ball,a golf ball,a paperclip and much more!
