No, leather tends to be heavier
A leather basketball is better than a rubber ball but if your playing outside the ground ruins the leather so a rubber ball is better when you are playing outside
A rubber basketball will bounce higher than a leather basketball of equal internal pressure. The leather covering adds additional weight and is less flexible.
Yes, a rubber basketball WILL bounce higher than a leather one, but leather balls generally have better grip and are mush easier to shoot and control on the dribble.
Yes, it definitely is! it depends , if u play indoor then leather is the best option but if you play outdoor , rubber is the answer
never! they both have the same mass.
The leather is put on the basketball for grip, wear and tear, and consistency. The bounce of the ball comes from the rubber bladder that the leather is surrounding. Air pressure and the quality of the ball effect it's bounce more than the leather.
Its because it has much more air than a basketball so it is heavier.
I would say yes but it all depends on how much air is in the basketball in question.
Often it is but it depend on the size of the slice of leather or cloth.
