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.
A rubber basketball will bounce higher than a leather basketball of equal internal pressure. The leather covering adds additional weight and is less flexible.
A leather basketball has a inner rubber bladder which is inflated with air.
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.
The pressure from the air inside of it
Yes. If it is colder the ball will bounce less than when it is warmer.
Gravity affects the bounce of a basketball because if there is gravity, the basketball will come back down after it bounces. But if there is no gravity, the basketball will bounce and travel indefinitely upwards and never come back down until a gravitational force pulls the basketball towards it.
Because when something is not inflated fully then it is partially flat. Which will affect its ability to bounce
Several factors affect the bounce of a basketball including the height that it was dropped from. The bounce factor includes elasticity, air pressure, force applied to it, and how rigid the surface is that the ball is bounced on.
Answer Yes. A basketball with no air will not bounce as much as a basketball with the right amount of air .
Because the temprature is responsible for the pressure inside the ball.
yes, if under it will not bounce correctly and i fover inflated sometimes ball become deformd causing bubbles.
