Bounce is the angle from the leading edge of the club face across the bottom of the club. If you have 7 degrees of bounce, the bottom part (part that rests on the ground) of the club will angle down toward the ground at 7 degrees. This is designed to keep the leading edge of the club from digging into the ground or sand as clubface strikes the ball. If you play where there is soft, deep sand you generally want more bounce. If the ground is hard and the sand soft, you may be well advised to use a sand wedge with lots of bounce (7-10 degrees) and a wedge from the ground with little bounce. Hit em straight and seldom--

How many times will a ball bounce if it is high in the air?

There are several variables in this problem. Different balls have different degrees of elasticity. And then there are different kinds of surfaces on which balls can bounce. A ball does not bounce the same way on a grass lawn that it does on a concrete floor. Also the description "high in the air" is not precise. Different heights can produce different numbers of bounces.

What is the ideal loft on a sand wedge?

It's usually around 56 degrees, with something like 10 degrees of bounce.

Does temperature affect the bounce of a rubber ball?

Temperature does not affect the bounce of a rubber ball. Let's say you bounce a rubber ball on the grass. The result will be different then bouncing a rubber ball on a concrete surface. The result is different because you are using a solid, hard surface to bounce the ball with. But the temperature will not affect the bounce of a rubber ball. you can test it out for youself.

How many different directions can a prolate spheroid bounce?


Why do balls bounce differently on different surfaces?

Different surfaces will absorb different amounts of the balls energy

Does the type of basketball court affect the bounce height of the basketball?

it depends if they use different types of wood because different wood means different dencity ,and a more solid foundation for the ball to bounce higher

What temperature does a basketball bounce the highest?

A basketball bounces its highest at 76 degrees fahrenheit. I did a science experiment on it.

How do different type of surfaces affect the bounce of a ball?

I am assuming you are talking about tennis. On a grass surface, the ball will bounce fast. On clay courts, the ball will bounce slower than on grass. On a hard court, the speed of the ball bounce will be in between clay and grass.

How high does a ball bounce depending of the air pressure in the ball?

the ball bounce high cause of the air in the ball If there is more air pressure in the ball it will bounce higher likewise if there is less air pressure it will bounce lower. This could be done by exposing the ball in different temperatures. If the ball gets hotter it will bounce higher and if gets colder it will bounce lower.

Why can some am broadcasts be heard for great distances under certain conditions?

AM radio waves bounce off the ionosphere. Favorable weather conditions and lack of sunspot activity enhance the waves' ability to bounce between the earth's surface and atmosphere, allowing the broadcast to travel a greater distance.
