The bowling ball is better for knocking down pins because it is larger and alson has a larger mass
The bowling ball because it is heavier and would have more impact.
Kinetic energy is the energy a moving body - in this case, the bowling ball - has. The ball actually has two forms of kinetic energy: rotational and translational. The rotational energy is the energy of it's spin, and the translational energy is the energy of it's motion towards the pins.
thow the bowling ball as hard as u can
If both are moving at the same speed, then the bowling ball has more kinetic energy because of its greater mass.
they are not the same. kinetic energy is energe that an object has due to its motion. potential energy is stored and held in the readiness. for example kinetic energy would be like a bowling ball knocking over bowling pins. unlike kinetic energy, which is the energy of motion, potential energy is stored and may be used later on like a car stopping at a red light.
If they are both moving at the same speed, then it would be the bowling ball because of its greater mass.
a strike ( if you knock all the bowling pins down with one " throw " of the bowling ball )
The most massive one. That's PROBABLY the bowling ball.
After you have released it, it has kinetic energy = 1/2mv2
The bowling ball because it has more mass
There is no "device" that is used to convert potential energy (PE) to kinetic energy (KE). PE is energy of position, for example, a bowling ball held over your head has the potential of breaking your foot if it were to fall. KE is energy of motion, for example, the energy the bowling ball has as it is falling toward your foot. The amount of PE the bowling ball had when it was motionless at some height above your head is approximately equal to the amount of KE the bowling ball has just before it lands on your foot.
If both are travelling at the same speed, certainly the bowling ball has much more kinetic energy, as it is, simply put, heavier. otherwise, Wk = m*v2 /2
Yes, no, maybe. It depends on how fast they're moving. At the same speed, a bowling ball has much more kinetic energy than a golf ball.
Answer=Transferred to the pins.
Kinetic energy is a function of mass and velocity. Therefore, an object with more mass, such as a bowling ball, would have to go slower than an object with less mass, such as a golf ball. So, if given the same amount of kinetic energy, a bowling ball will go faster than a golf ball, because it has more mass.
The force of the bowling ball colliding with the golf ball causes the golf ball to be redirected in an elastic collision. How fast either travels depends on the friction of the surface and the angle of contact with the bowling ball.Comparative Masses and EnergyIn the collision between a golf ball and a bowling ball, the fact that the bowling ball continues to move (although possibly changed in direction) is a function of the comparative masses of the two. The bowling ball is much more massive, so at normal velocities its kinetic energy exceeds the kinetic energy of the golf ball. In order to "stop" the bowling ball, the golf ball would have to make a perfectly aimed collision, and have a much higher velocity. Quantitatively, the velocity of the golf ball would have to be the inverse ratio of the ratio of the masses of the two balls, so that the kinetic energy (mass times velocity) is equal and in the opposite direction.Example : Golf ball at 45 g, ten pound bowling ball at 4500 g -- the golf ball would have to move at 100 times the velocity of the bowling ball to counteract its kinetic energy. If the bowling ball rolls at 2 m/sec, the golf ball would have to travel at more than 200 m/sec (720 kph or 447 mph), about 3 times a ball's normal velocity off the face of a golf club.
Knocking down all the remaining pins after the second ball in tenpin bowling is termed as a spare.
No, the wool would absorb some of the energy, making the bowling ball less effective for its purpose.
The kinetic energy depends on both the velocity and the mass of the object. Kinetic energy = (1/2) x mass x velocity2. If a bowling ball and a golf ball are moving at the same velocity, then the bowling ball, being more massive, will have the greater amount of kinetic energy. However, bowling balls rarely move as fast as golf balls, so the full calculation is required for the specific situation of interest.
the second one because the little friction turns to thermal energy while the first one... no energy transformations are occuring. except potential energy
The bowling ball has more potential energy, but, how many people measure potential energy by having things fall on their head
Friction to the pins and friction on the lane
