rubber basketballs by far
A leather basketball has a inner rubber bladder which is inflated with air.
A rubber basketball will bounce higher than a leather basketball of equal internal pressure. The leather covering adds additional weight and is less flexible.
Basketballs are made using leather, composite leather or rubber as the covering. Rubber balls may be all rubber and can be used in water indoors and out. Leather and composite leather basketballs are indoor balls and more expensive. The leather balls give better grip are more uniform and retain their shape better than rubber.
why dont you try yourself.
Basketballs are usually made of a composite leather material, rubber, or real leather. The bladder on the inside is usually rubber.
Yes, a rubber basketball WILL bounce higher than a leather one, but leather balls generally have better grip and are mush easier to shoot and control on the dribble.
Most basketballs have an inner rubber sac that holds air. The outside of the ball can be composed of rubber, man-made fibers, or leather.
A glass ball will bounce higher than a rubber one.
The leather is put on the basketball for grip, wear and tear, and consistency. The bounce of the ball comes from the rubber bladder that the leather is surrounding. Air pressure and the quality of the ball effect it's bounce more than the leather.
Rubber will bounce higher than plastic because the rubber has more elastic qualities. A rubber ball will give a little when it hits the floor and a plastic ball will not.
It all depends on how much air there is inside, where you bounce it, and how you bounce it. Well if there were same amount of air, bounced on the same surface and with the same power, a rubber ball would bounce higher. But that doesn't mean a rubber basketball is simply better. People certainly would choose a leather basketball, because it looks better and has a better quality, and can last longer if played indoors. If you were looking for which is better, I would say that's totally upto you, whether you play indoors (a leather ball would be heaps better), or outdoors (a rubber ball is much better in this case). But if you were looking for which bounced higher, it is definitely rubber. This is because a rubber cover is harder than a leath covering. When something is harder, this allows to put more pressure when the ball hits the floor. This causes the ball to bounce higher.
I wouldn't think so, but it may help with dribbling.
if a rubber ball is heated up it causes the molecules' energy to increase. as a result it exerts more pressure which causes it to bounce higher. heat also make the rubber a little softer so it will give the rubber ball a higher bounce.
The first basketballs were made from panels of leather stitched together with a rubber bladder inside. The very first basketballs used were actually just soccer balls.
The runner bladder used for making basketballs is made out of rubber.
because they are made to bounce
Athletes use rubber shoes instead of leather shoes for a couple reasons. These include the rubber not conducting electricity like friction and providing a comfier "bounce" when running.
Basketballs are almost all made with the same materials. They have an inflatable rubber interior, which is then wrapped in layers of fiber. That's then covered rubber, synthetic composite, or the most common, leather.
The first purpose-built basketballs were made from panels of leather stitched together with a rubber bladder inside.
It will bounce on cement because cement is hard and solid and grass is soft
Today's basketballs are made out of rubber, not cow hide.
