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.

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 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.


Does a tennis ball become more elastic when it is heated?

Tennis balls contract when heated which means that it will bounce higher.


Will a hot tennis ball bounce higher than a cold tennis ball?

In theory, yes, however the largest effect of the temperature will be on the court. The hotter the surface is, the higher the ball will bounce.


Why does a heated up tennis ball bounce higher than a frozen or room temperature ball?

Because the internal pressure increases when the air in the ball is heated and this increases its 'bounceability'. If the ball is cooled it's like partially deflating it.


How does the temperature of a tennis ball effect the height of its bounce?

the hotter the tennis ball is the higher it will bounce because the molecules are moving faster and the pressure is decreasing. Opposite when it is cold.

What will bounce higher a tennis ball or baseball?

Test is!. A tennis ball is going to bounce higher.


Will a tennis or a racquetball bounce higher?

A racquetball will bounce higher. A racquetball is required to be able to bounce 68 to 72 inches from a 100 inch drop at an outside temperature of 70 to 74 degrees Fahrenheit. A tennis ball will only rebound 46 to 52 inches but the USTA doesn't give a drop or temperature requirement.


Why does temperature affect the bounce of a tennis ball?

When the ball is hot, the molecules move faster and they act as a spring causing the ball to bounce higher.


What bounces higher a heated tennis ball or a frozen tennis ball?

Heated tennis balls bounce better! Just been playing today in -2 deg C temperatures and the longer the balls were lying around for (and getting cold) the less they bounced.


How does air temperature affect the height of a tennis balls bounce?

Cold air is more dense which is making the ball bounce higher, warm air is less dense which is making the ball bounce less higher.


Does the heated tennis ball go higher or the room temperature or the frozen one?

The heated, then the room temperature, then the frozen ball. It's the heated because of how fast the molecules are moving. :)

Do tennis ball bounce higher in hot or cold weather?

The tennis ball will bounce higher in hot weather than in cold weather.


Why does a heated tennis ball bounce really high?

Tennis balls have pressured air inside of them from the manufacturer. This air on days with higher temperatures will increase and expand this internalized pressure of the ball, thus making the ball more solid and hard. This increases the "bounce" of the ball


Which bounces higher a tennis ball or racquetball?

A racquetball will bounce higher. A racquetball is required to be able to bounce 68 to 72 inches from a 100 inch drop at an outside temperature of 70 to 74 degrees Fahrenheit. A tennis ball will only rebound 46 to 52 inches but the USTA doesn't give a drop or temperature requirement.


If you store tennis balls at a warm temperature will it affect the rebound?

Yes it will effect the rebound height. It tends to bounce higher in a warm temperature because the molecules speed up and strike the inner core more and faster so this makes it bounce higher!


What will bounce higher a frozen tennis ball or a dry tennis ball?

Technically, a frozen tennis ball will not bounce well because of the temperature. The elasticity is one of the factors in which a ball bounces and when things are colder, there isn't as much elasticity, so it will not bounce as well. Therefore, a dry ball (as long as it wasn't frozen in a container) will bounce better than a frozen one.


Why does a tennis ball bounce higher when dropped from a greater height?

Due to the fact that a tennis ball is traveling at a higher speed when dropped from a higher height, it will rebound with greater speed and bounce higher.
