### 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 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.

### How long does a tennis ball last?

A tennis ball may deteriorate for a number of reasons, including usage (i.e., being hit) and the environment (i.e., heat and humidity). Left alone, a tennis ball would, eventually, lose air through osmosis of the rubber core and felt coverings. When struck, the air is forced out little by little. Heat forces air to escape more quickly, and the effects of humidity and being struck wear out the felt covering, as well as causing tiny cracks and holes in the felt and rubber from which air will escape.

### 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
