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

### 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.

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

Tennis balls contract when heated which means that it will 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 bounce higher when it is warmer or colder?

Hot. Personal experiments have shown that temperatures below 25&deg;C make the ball bounce less. From 25&deg;C and upwards there aren't any greater changes in height of bounce. The balls bounce almost the same.

### 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.

### Which tennis ball bounce higher a frozen one or a unfrozen one?

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.

### How does the temperature of a tennis ball effect its 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 happen to the gas inside a tennis ball when frozen?

### 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.
