Yes it will effect the rebound height. It tends to bounce higher in a warm temperature because the molecules speed up and strike the inner core more and faster so this makes it bounce higher!

How high does a tennis ball bounce on hard surfaces?

In general, it will rebound a bit less than the height from which it fell originally.

What is the coldest temperature to store a tennis ball?

Although there is no preset or manufacture recommended temperature at which tennis balls may be stored, they should be stored at room temperatures of between 65 and 75 degrees, with 68 being the ideal, as that is the temperature mandated for testing tennis balls by the International Tennis Federation (the ruling body for tennis; refer to the ITF link, below).

Your partner and you are doing your project on how can the temperature affect how high a tennis ball bounces?

i am not sure but when it gets hot balls tend to expand and preforme like flat balls but when its cold balls usually contract and get tighter and bounce higher.

Does temperature affect the air inside the tennis ball?

It the ball has air in it, then an increase of temperature will increase the pressure within the ball, over the short term. Over the long term, all pressurized tennis balls lose pressure. If the ball is the pressureless type, it has no air to be affected by temperature.

How high will an orange tennis ball bounce?

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.

How high can a cold hot or warm tennis ball bounce?

My son and I did this experiment as a science fair project. We put 2 tennis balls in the freezer for 1 hour. We also put 2 tennis balls in heating pad (high setting) for 1 hour. We also used 2 room temperature balls. We dropped the balls from 80" onto a tile floor and measured the height of the bouces with a measuring tape. The results were fairly dramatic. The tennis balls from the freezer bounced an average of 25 inches. The room temperature balls bounced a full 50 inches. The warm balls bounced an average of 55 inches. Obviously there was a significant difference between the bounces of cold and warm tennis balls.

Does a room temperature tennis ball bounce higher then a heated tennis ball?

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.

How does the environment affect tennis courts?

Just as it affects people, the environment may affect the tennis courts. Regardless of the surface: If it is too cold or dry, the surface will tend to be harder and the tennis balls will bounce higher and faster; if it is too hot or humid, the surface will tend to be softer and the tennis balls will bounce lower and slower. The same is true for the ability of the tennis player to run on that surface during those conditions.

Who uses tennis balls?

How does air temperature affect the height of a tennis balls bounce?

Cold air is more dense which is making the ball bounce higher, warm air is less dense which is making the ball bounce less higher.

Why do you use new tennis balls and not old tennis balls?

New tennis balls are considered fresh and not "flat". Old tennis balls exposed to play and air become flat and do not perform normally in a match.

How quickly do tennis balls lose their bounce?

If you open a new can of tennis balls and leave them in the can without using them, it can take a week for the tennis balls to have a significant loss in their bounce. If you are using tennis balls daily, then it can be a matter of a couple of weeks to around three weeks until the tennis balls lose their bounce completely.
