A soccer ball that is hard has less 'room' in it for the gas to compress so it springs back with vigor.

A softer or mushy ball will tend to just go oomph, compress much more and spring back softly.

Assuming you kick 2 balls exactly the same way, since the harder ball bounces right back to shape, it will go further.

It's like dropping a ping pong ball and a marshmallow. The ping pong ball will bounce much higher.

Why are the wheels on the plane tucked in after take off?

If they were left out the plane would become less aerodynamic; it would take more fuel to go the same distance and speed.It is also because the height at which planes fly have less air pressure as we know air travels from high pressure to low pressure the air inside the wheels comes and the wheel burst out

What is the effect of temperature on the distance of a ball?

Temperature can affect a couple of different variables in a ball to alter the distance it will travel from an impact. For inflated balls, the temperature can change the air pressure inside the ball giving an over inflated effect if it was warmed, or and under inflated effect if it was cold. (Have you ever tried dribbling a basketball without enough air in it?) The amount of air pressure then is directly proportional to the temperature of the air inside.

Does the external environmental factors affect the boiling point of liquid in pressure cooker?

No, the external environment does not affect the boiling point of a liquid inside a pressure cooker. Since the liquid is sealed away from the air, it is not affected by ambient air pressure or humidity.

How bubbles affect how fast does water freezes?

it affects the water because the bubbles have oxygen inside them which causes pressure

Does the temperature affect how high or low a basketball can bounce?

Yes, temperature affects the pressure of the air and when the pressure outside the ball is lower, the pressure inside will be greater, thus making it bounce better.
