How high does a super ball bounce when dropped from 5 feet?

About 40 to 44 inches.

How high will a tennis ball bounce from 5 ft?

well, it all depends on how dead or new the ball is. If it is fresh, it will bounce about 3 1/2 feet.

How high will a basketball bounce if it is dropped 12 feet out of the air?

If properly inflated, it will bounce 8 times. Each bounce rebounds about 70%, so 14 feet on the first bounce, then about 10 on the second, etc. until the ball is bigger than the bounce.

How is mathematics essential to scientific communication?

Math is used to quantify scientific observations and predictions. Ie: how high will the ball bounce when dropped from 10 feet?

If a basketball is properly inflated, it should rebound after bouncing on the ground to about one-Half the height from which it was dropped. If the ball is dropped from 20 feet, how high will it bounce back after the sixth bounce?


A ball is dropped from 10 feet above the ground.It hits the ground and bounces up half as high as it fellThis is true for each successive bounce.What height does the ball reach on the fourth bounce?

1.75 ft

What is the difference between volleyball and volley tennis?

Volleyball is a sport played with a volleyball and two teams of six on either side. Tennis is where teams of one or two hit a tennis ball over a very small net. Volleyball nets are approximately seven feet tall and the point of volleyball is for the ball to hit the floor on the other side of the court. Tennis balls can bounce and the point of tennis in for the ball to bounce twice or bounce out of bounds without the opponent hitting it with their tennis racket.

How high does a golf ball bounce when dropped from 5 feet?

In the REAL World, it will bounce LESS than 5 feet. How much LESS? That depends on the Elasticity of the Collision. In a PERFECT SYSTEM, with a 100% Elastic Collision and no Frictional Losses, it would bounce (Rebound) to 5 feet...forever, over and over again.However, there is no REAL totally elastic collision in the REAL World. The Rebound Force will be LESS than the Collision Force of the Ball. This is due to Frictional Forces that cause Energy Losses in the form of HEAT in the Ball and the Floor materials.

How high will a basketball bounce if dropped?

If we knew from what height the ball, when dropped, would reach its terminal velocity, and if we knew the percentage of rebound the ball would give, we could then be certain. I can only guess that a basketball will rebound approximately 75% of the height from which it is dropped, and if the height at which it would reach terminal velocity is maybe 300 feet, the ball would bounce back up to 225 feet. Just a guess! A basketball has an elasticity (or "bounciness") of about 56 percent.I'm not sure there's a theoretical limit. In practice, of course, there would be one: when the velocity of the ball impacting the ground is so great the ball explodes rather than bouncing. But you'd have to fire it out of some kind of basketball cannon to get it moving that fast.The official standard for ball inflation is that the ball should bounce roughly 75% of its drop height (specifically, between 49" and 54") when dropped from 6 feet. If you're referring to just the height a dropped ball could bounce and you're not throwing it down with some kind of basketball-downward-hurling machine, you could calculate the theoretical bounce height by figuring out what terminal velocity is for a basketball, calculating how high you'd have to drop it from (assuming no atmosphere) to achieve that velocity, and then multiplying by 0.75. I'm not going to do it for you, because I'm not actually all that interested in the answer, but that's how you could do it if you are.

How high does a basketball bounce when dropped from 5 feet with only 5 pounds of air?

2 meters

How high does a super ball bounce at 2 and a half feet?

Not all super balls bounce the same way. We would have to know more about the ball, such as its size and the material it's made of.

Would a ball dropped from 5 feet on the moon hit the ground faster that a ball dropped from five feet on the earth?

No, it would hit slower because gravity on the moon is 1/6 the gravity on earth.
