A wet tennis ball is a ruined tennis ball. It does not bounce as high. You can dry a tennis ball quickly by hitting it against a chain-link fence repidly for a little while. Once the ball is dry, then you can use it again.
Tennis balls have a high bounce because the pressure inside the ball is greater then the pressure outside of the ball.
Color does not affect the bounce. Purple tennis balls bounce as high as green and yellow tennis balls. It really depends on the type of ball.
it should bounce high enough to get over the net
about 45 to 59 inches high
A softer ground, such as clay, will decrease the bounce of a tennis ball, a harder ground, such as concrete, will make the ball bounce higher.
about 5.6 feet.
it depends on how high you bounce it
if it is rough it will bounce lower and it is smooth it will bounce higher
Well it depends on the tennis ball and also how high you bounce . You never know . Unless you measure of corse ! Well I guess the world will never know ! Or will it??
a wet tennis ball doesn't bounce as high, so the dry one will bounce higher
It will ogoogily boogily poopy
No, a room temperature ball does not bounce higher than a heated tennis ball. In fact, the heated tennis ball will bounce higher than its room temperature counterpart. This is because tennis balls rely on a high pressure internal pocket of air for their bounce. Heating the tennis ball would increase the pressure of the air inside the ball (pressure varies as temperature) which would cause the tennis ball to bounce higher. This holds (albeit for different reasons) for most solid balls as well, such as baseballs.
The dry tennis ball will bounce higher, if you use the same amount of force, the wet tennis ball will slide a bit when it hits the ground and bounce lower. In short, the weight of the water will make the tennis ball heavier, with the weight of the water keeping it from bouncing as high.
Should to around 75% of the height that you drop it from.
The more fuzz, the less bounce. The less fuzzy, the higher the bounce.
Yes it does, the water accumulates in the ball, which causes it to get heavier and therefore doesn't bounce as high as a normal tennis ball. The ball also tends to slide on the courts when the ball hits the surface when hit with pace.
well, it all depends on how dead or new the ball is. If it is fresh, it will bounce about 3 1/2 feet.
True. Freezing would compress the gas in the ball and reduce the elasticity of the rubber in it.
Tennis balls have pressured air inside of them from the manufacturer. This air on days with higher temperatures will increase and expand this internalized pressure of the ball, thus making the ball more solid and hard. This increases the "bounce" of the ball
because it looses all its air so it wont be able to bounce as high as it would normally do.
