because of the air inside of the ball
Basketballs CAN! bounce on carpet.
the answer is SPALDING BALLS
they have lots of air in them so they can bounce high
Depending on the type of material that is used for the indoor track, it is possible to bounce a basketball on the floor.
I would say yes but it all depends on how much air is in the basketball in question.
Height of bounce will not depend on the mass at all. It depends on the elasticity of the ball and the height where from it is dropped.
A leather basketball has a inner rubber bladder which is inflated with air.
