### When you throw a ball at a wall it bounces back. What is the force making that ball come back?

Elasticity (or reversible deformation). The force expended to accelerate the ball causes it to move into the wall. There, it will come into contact with the wall and will deform. When deformation and reformation have been completed, the ball will be moving away from the wall. The energy exchanges will have balanced and the laws of conservation will have been obeyed. A link is provided to the Wikipedia article on elasticity.
