Of course; the more air in a ball, the farther it will travel when kicked.

Not always im doing a project at school, and not all say the same as you.

It all has to do with gravity and aerodynamics. The law of gravity is what goes up must come down that's the natural right off the bat effect the other factors come with passer ability, wind, spiral on the ball. Easy explanation The more force used to throw a football and the better the spiral the further the ball will go.

A soccer ball that is more inflated (has more air) tends to be harder and responds more to the pressure applied from a kick. Balls with less air tend to be flatter, and thus not travel as well.

does air inside the football affect the distance when thrown

Yes. A flat ball will not go as far when kicked as a ball filled with air.

### Does wind affect the motion of a football that is thrown?

Here is how rain affects a quarterback's throw: *Rain makes the ball wet and heavier which will shorten the distance it travels, as well as the trajectory.. *Rain makes it harder to grip the ball, affecting the quarterback's ability to impart spin and force to it. *Rain hitting the ball will shorten the distance it travels, as well as the trajectory. *A wet uniform, as well as being cold, can affect the quarterback's ability to throw. *Rain can also affect vision, making the target harder to determine. *Mud and wet fields make footing less sure and can affect the force the quarterback imparts to the football.
