When a soccer ball has less air pressure its heavy and can't move easily through the air. When the air pressure is evenly distributed throughout the ball its lighter and can move more easily.
MUch more air pressure usually distabilizes the foot ball. the place where pressure is low generally the ball moves towards that side.
A ball that is flat is heavier because the ball is in a shrunken state. When the ball is pumped, the ball is stretched, making it lighter because the rubber is evenly distributed on all sides, thereby, making the ball much easier to bounce immediately. When the ball is deflated, there is very little movement on the ball's part. The rubber is much heavier, and not worth playing with.
