Why does a golf ball heavier than table tennis ball?

A table tennis ball is made of plastic, and is hollow. A golf ball is made of a composite of materials, and has a solid core, allowing it to travel much further through the air (by adding mass, the momentum of the ball increases).

What are curves in table tennis?

Balls or hits that are spun in the air curve through the air depending on which way they are spun. In good table tennis, most shots will have various directions and elements of spin imparted to them, especially topspin. Spinning balls moving through the air curve as a result of what is called, "the magnus effect" - where, due to the clash of the air that hugs the ball as it spins and the oncoming air through which the ball is travelling, greater air pressure is built up on that side of the ball and a 'lift' is imparted to the ball that reults in a turning or curving path of the ball through the air. Ready examples of this are the "bending" of a soccer ball that is kicked so as to impart spin on the ball and the golf ball lift that allows the ball to travel further through the air as it is hit with underspin.

What are the effects of temperature on the rebound of a tennis ball?

its is the air inside the tennis ball that you should be concerned with. Cold air is compressed and gives the ball less bounce, hot air is less dense and pushes on the sides of the tennis ball from the inside. Another important factor is altitude. altitude changes the amount of oxygen in the air. this doesnt change rebound it causes the ball to travel further in air.

What is a tennis balls?

A tennis ball is basicaly a ball filled with air through a valve. I don't kanow too much about it, I have to admit.

Can the temperature of a tennis ball affect its bounce?

Yes, this is because when the tennis ball is in a heated environment warm air enters through the ball and because the temperature gets higher, the tennis ball would get bigger. When the tennis ball is bigger it would bounce higher.

Why is a golf ball heavier than a table tennis ball?

Because a golf ball is denser. When you cut a golf ball and a table tennis ball in half, the golf ball is solid all the way through. The table tennis ball has a cavity filled with mostly air inside.

How do they seal the air inside a tennis ball?

They build the tennis ball around the air, really! Actually, the tennis ball is made in two halves and then heat wielded together to form the finished ball.

Why does a heated tennis ball bounce higher?

A heated tennis ball bounces higher because the hot air inside the ball is lighter than the air around the ball therefore giving the tennis ball the ability to bounce higher.

Why is a tennis ball bouncy?

Under the fuzzy exterior of a tennis ball is a rubber "shell". Rubber has a natural bouncy quality, but it's the compressed air inside the rubber shell that gives it that extra bounce. If you ever heat up a screwdriver and push it through the tennis ball, you should hear the air hissing out, or whooshing out in some circumstances. Hope this helped, Chris

Why does a tennis ball not fall faster than a golf ball in free fall?

The mass of the objects don't matter in free fall - they both fall at the same time, assuming air resistance is negligible. However in your case, the golf ball has less air resistance than a tennis ball (add that to the fact tennis ball consist most of air inside adding more to the air resistance). Therefore, the golf ball falls faster than a tennis ball - Hope that helped!

The lead-filled ball, because it is less affected by air resistance.

Does a room temperature tennis ball bounce higher then a heated tennis ball?

No, a room temperature ball does not bounce higher than a heated tennis ball. In fact, the heated tennis ball will bounce higher than its room temperature counterpart. This is because tennis balls rely on a high pressure internal pocket of air for their bounce. Heating the tennis ball would increase the pressure of the air inside the ball (pressure varies as temperature) which would cause the tennis ball to bounce higher. This holds (albeit for different reasons) for most solid balls as well, such as baseballs.

A golf ball has more mass than a tennis ball because it?

It doesn't. A tennis ball has a mass of about 57g A golf ball has a mass of about 46g The golf ball is DENSER because it has material inside it (usually rubber) but the tennis ball is full of a gas (air).
