On the moon. When a golf ball is struck on earth, gravity slows it and brings it to a halt. On the moon, there is very little gravity, so the potential energy of the golf ball is limitless.
It would move and go 6 times as farther than on the moon due to the gravity of the moon being 1/6 of Earth's gravity.
A golf ball can be hit farther by using more strength. A golf ball can also be hit harder by using the right club and hitting the ball with the wind.
no, a golf ball would weigh about 1/6 what it weighs on earth.
a new one should
They will be exactly the same. The mass of an object doesn't change, no matter where it is. It's weight will change though. So the weight of a golf ball on the Moon will be about a sixth of what it is on Earth.
It works the same way it does on Earth. The momentum of the club is transferred to the golf ball and it travels. And it isn't slowed down by the friction of air.
A warmer golf ball goes further, you cannot warm it up though because that is not allowed under the rules of golf.
a golf ball is heavier
makes the ball go farther, due to aerodynamics makes the ball go farther, due to aerodynamics
a golf ball, which can be hit over a distance of more than 300 meters.
There is no "air", because the moon is in the vaccuum of space. Therefore, the ball encounters no air resistance. Also, because the moon's gravity is approximately 1/6 of that seen on Earth, the flight of a lightly struck golf ball on the moon could very well go as far as Tiger's best.
Yes, a warm golf ball will travel farther than one that is cold. Just like any sports ball, when it is warmer it can compress much more when struck, allowing it to travel farther. Just the other day I went and played golf in 40 degree weather and my ball flight went nowhere.
The easiest thing is to hit the ball out of the centre of the club.
A golf ball is heavier and has better aerodynamic qualities, therefore it could be thrown further than a tennis ball, which is too light.
Yes, theoretically. The golf ball's rate of transferring energy (in this case elastic) is dependent on its COR (coefficient of restitution) - which is basically a rate of how rigid the shell is. In simple words, yes. The golf ball that bounces higher than other golf balls is bouncier than the other golf balls. If you hit a rubber ball with a golf club, the ball should travel farther than all the regular golf balls.
Because there is no atmosphere to slow the ball by friction and the gravity is lower so the ball is less affected
A precept is harder than a TaylorMade. But is also depends on if you have TaylorMade Black or Red. Overall, TaylorMade balls will go farther and spin more.
It does if your swing is correct.
There are famous pictures of Alan Shepard hitting a golf ball on the moon. Since the moon is a low gravity atmosphere, the ball was able to travel for miles.
No, a warmer ball will travel farther than a colder one. When the core of the ball is warmer it will be more energetic. Also if the air is colder that means it is denser and will mean there is going to be more drag on the ball, so it will not travel as far.
Yes. The moon has gravity.
