Would a golf ball have more or less potential energy on the moon than it does on earth?

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.

If an astronaut hit a golf ball on the moon What would happen and why?

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.

Could you hit a golf ball further on earth or the moon?

the moon

How can you hit a golf ball farther?

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.

Do golf balls become weightless on the moon?

no, a golf ball would weigh about 1/6 what it weighs on earth.

Which goes farther a new golf ball or an old golf ball?

a new one should

Does a frozen golf ball thawed out go farther than a non frozen golf ball?


How does a golf ball's mass on the moon compare to its mass on earth?

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.

How is it possible to hit a golf ball on the moon?

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.

Does a heated golf ball go farther then a cold golf ball?

A warmer golf ball goes further, you cannot warm it up though because that is not allowed under the rules of golf.

Why can you throw a golf ball farther than a ping pong ball?

a golf ball is heavier

Why do golf balls have dimpels?

makes the ball go farther, due to aerodynamics makes the ball go farther, due to aerodynamics

What goes farther tennis ball baseball golf ball or ping pong ball?

a golf ball, which can be hit over a distance of more than 300 meters.

What happens if you play golf on the moon?

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.

Do warm golf balls go farther?

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.

How do you hit golf ball farther?

The easiest thing is to hit the ball out of the centre of the club.

Which ball can be thrown farther a golf ball or tennis ball?

A golf ball is heavier and has better aerodynamic qualities, therefore it could be thrown further than a tennis ball, which is too light.

Will a golf ball travel farther than any other golf ball when hit by a golf club if the golf ball bounces higher than the other golf balls when dropped from the same distance?

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.

Why is it possible to hit a golf ball much further on the moon than on earth?

Because there is no atmosphere to slow the ball by friction and the gravity is lower so the ball is less affected

Does a taylormade golf ball go farther than a precept golf ball?

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.

Does a golf ball go farther if its hit harder?

It does if your swing is correct.

Did anyone ever golf on the moon?

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.

Does a frozen golf ball go farther than a non frozen golf ball?

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.

Does a golf ball fall when dropped on the Moon?

Yes. The moon has gravity.

Where is buzz Aldrin's golf ball?
