Why did the pins fall down before the bowler released the ball?

they were on strike

Do most pro bowlers look at the pins or look at a mark at the release point?

Somewhere inbetween. Most bowlers pick a spot a short way onto the lane and attempt to roll the ball over that spot. One of the arrows that are about 15 feet from the foul line would be a good reference to look at when rolling the ball.

On no tap tournament - how about if you hit 8 pins only on my 1st ball?

Answer Two: There is such a thing as an 8 pin no tap tournament, usually for younger bowlers. In that case, an 8 count would also count as a strike. Answer One: In the game of 9-pin no-tap, 9 or 10 pins down on the first ball is a strike, and 8 pins down is only scored as an 8 count and you must throw at the two remaining pins for the second ball in that frame. In the game of 8-pin no-tap, 8, 9 or 10 pins down on first ball is scored as a strike, and you will get a full rack of pins for the next frame instead of having to attempt a spare.

How do you keep score in bowling?

Score keeping in bowling is as simple as adding up the number of pins that you knock down. As each player takes a turn they try to knock down all ten of the pins. Each player is given up to two opportunities to do this. The player will roll their bowling ball (find a bowling ball) down the bowling alley towards the pins in an attempt to knock pins over. The pins that are knocked down on this first attempt are counted and recorded. The pinsetter at the bowling alley will remove the pins still standing, clear the leveled pins, then return the standing pins back in place. The bowlers ball is returned and the bowler gets a second attempt at knocking the pins over. The bowler again rolls their ball down the alley to try and knock any remaining pins down. The number of pins knocked down on this second attempt is then recorded. The bowlers score is then the pins from the first roll, plus the pins from the second roll, then added to any previous score.Example: X | 9/ | 81 | X | X | 53...If you strike, you get 10 pins for that ball, plus the total pins for your next two shots added to your first frame. So since this person struck they automatically get 10, then they knocked over a total of 10 pins on the second two shots. Their total for the first frame would be 20. The fourth frame would add 10 pins for the initial strike, then 10 pins for the first ball and another 5 for the second ball. That frame would add 25 pins to your score.If you spare, you add the number of pins you knocked down for that frame plus the pins on your next shot. So the second frame has 10 for the initial frame and adds 8 for a total of 18 pins added to the frame before it.If you open you arent awarded any extra pins, you only add the number of pins you knocked down.So if you score the beginning of this game, for each frame consecutively, you get:X | 9/ | 81 | X | X | 53...20 | 38 | 47 | 72 | 90 | 98...

What happens to the momentum of a bowling ball when it hits the pins?

Energy is transferred to the pins and the deflection and contact of the pins will typically slow the ball momentum.

What are the three most popular bowling balls used by the pros?

Due to constant changes in the bowling industry, there isn't a common or popular ball always used by professional bowlers. Many professional bowlers may have an equipment sponsorship deal that limits their use to a specific brand of ball. The sponsor may also require, for purposes of promotion, to have a player use a specific ball during a tournament. What is typical of professionals is that they have a ball geared to make picking up corner pins easier. Usually a plastic ball or one drilled in a fashion to limit the hooking of the ball.
