No work is doen by gravity on a bowling ball that is rolled along a bowling alley because?

Work = force x distance. The idea is that no force is applied to the ball - except for a small amount of force due to friction. Specifically, you don't apply a force to keep it moving - that's the ball's natural tendency, so it requires no force to do so.

How come the newtons first law is useful in bowling?

A bowling ball is harder to get moving and harder to stop than a hollow rubber ball of the same size.

The two seem to go together in some way, and the next section examines this further. It may work!!!

How does wrist strengtheners wrist supports and gloves help you play bowling?

While one might not think of it, the wrist plays a very important role in how comfortable the grip of the bowling ball feels. When you grip anything the muscles in the wrist work to help. After bowling two or three games in a league or open bowling, and placing your fingers in the bowling ball and gripping it 30-50 times, the wrist can become tired and fatigued. A strong wrist and/or supports/gloves can help the wrist withstand the wear and tear gripping a bowling ball does to it, along with making the bowler feel more comfortable while bowling.
