Yes temperature does effect how far the ball will travel. The colder the temp, the colder the air inside the ball is and the colder the leather of the ball is. This causes the ball to be coming harder and more stiff and will not travel as far as a ball on a warm summer day. You wont loose a lot of distance and I am not sure of the acutal measurements but it was something like for every 10 degrees cooler it is, the ball will travel a couple yards less than it would if it was warm.

Yes. The physics involved are quite complex however, and change depending upon the wind, the surface the ball is being kicked off of, and the individual kicker making the kick.

Generally speaking the more surface area a kicker can tough with his foot during the actual kick, the more accurate it will be, however for distance the kicker needs to place his impact on the ball at the lower-back side of the football, so that it has a "driving force" as the ball moves down the field.

The more towards the center (in terms of height) that the ball is kicked, the more accurate it will be. The lower (in terms of height) the more distance it should travel. The angle at which the ball is set up or held can have enormous impact on the kicker's ability to kick the ball correctly for that desired play.

yes it does when you change the size of the football you change the way the air moves around it. The smaller the football the less air resistence but less stability, meaning it will go far but not where you want it. The larger the football the more air resistance and more stability, meaning it won't go as far as the small football but it will be more accurate. Really it all comes down to how hard you kick it, and how you kick it.

Temperature is a factor in how the ball responds to being kicked. However, accuracy is a quality of the kicker, not of the ball. To be accurate, the kicker needs to consider temperature as well a dozens of other factors.

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.
