Use more or less force than you usually do, more force, faster ball, less force, slower ball.

### If a golf ball and a bowling ball are rolled toward each other when they collide and the bowling ball stops how does the golf balls speed compare with the bowling balls speed?

the golf ball stopped but the bowling ball keep rolling due to their different size and weight.as we know bowling ball is bigger in size as well as weight so it will face more fictin force and stops early as compare to golf ball when they collide and at the same time bowling ball poshes the golf ball back.so the golf ball stops and the golf ball keeps rolling.

### If a bowling ball and ping-pong ball are rolled down the highway at identical speed which ball has the greatest amount of kinetic energy?

The bowling ball because it has more mass

### What makes a bowling ball harder to stop than a soccer ball when they are both traveling at the same speed?

The bowling ball is harder to stop because it has a greater mass, and therefore a greater momentum. But the answer is that the bowling ball has a greater mass.

### Compare the speed of a moving golf ball with the speed of a moving bowling ball if both balls have the same amount of momentum?

momentum=velocity x mass say a golf ball weighs 1 pound and the bowling ball weighs 5 pounds the golf ball would have to be moving 5 times faster than the bowling ball to have the same momentum

### If you have a choice of catching a baseball or a bowling ball both with the same ke which is safer?

catching the bowling ball will be the safest because in order for the KE to be the same the speed of the bowling ball must be less in order to even out the equations.

### Why does bowling ball goes faster than basketball?

Rolled? Thrown? How heavy of a bowling ball? And the speed of a ball depends on how hard a person throws it. It is hard to answer such a general question.

### Why does a heavier bowling ball roll faster than a lighter bowling ball?

there is more momentum and it depends on what your arm swing speed is when you throw a bowling ball because on your follow through there is more momentum going with a heiver ball rather than a lighter ball

a bowling ball

### What force causes a bowling ball to roll down the hill?

No. Speed and force cause a bowling ball to roll down a lane. Friction may cause a bowling ball to change course on a lane though, and also slow it down.

### Which exerts a gravitational force a baseball a football or a bowling ball?

A bowling ball since it has more mass. However, both the ping pong ball and the bowling ball are subjected to the same acceleration due to gravity, specifically 9.82 m s-2 and, neglecting air resistance, would fall at the same rate of speed.

### Why is it easier to stop a soccer ball than a bowling ball?

It depends on how fast they're going. A bowling ball is much heavier, therefore has more momentum if they're both travelling at the same speed.
