Depends on the Golf ball manufacture and the number of dimples on the ball. Is there a specific ball you are looking at measuring

What is the difference between a circlular golf ball ad a dodecohedron golf ball?

All golf ball manufacturers attempt at least to make round or circular golf balls. The term dodecohedron (not certain of the spelling) is refering to a dimple pattern of a golf ball. Two different golf balls for example can be identical in size and roundness but each may have a distinctly different dimple pattern. If you look closely at a golf ball you can see that the dimples on most golf balls ,but not all, have varying sized dimples, they may vary in depth as well as diameter. I think Maxfli used the term dodecohedron in a marketing campaign describing the dimple pattern of there golf ball.

What is a golf ball made out off?

There are 3 types of golf ball: The two-piece golf ball, The three-piece golf ball and the Dimple-covered shell. The most common golf ball in market is the two-piece golf ball which is made out of rubber inside and plastic outside. The three-piece golf ball consists a core of gel, tightly wound rubber threads and hard plastic on the outside. Lastly, the dimple-covered shell golf ball is made out of hard plastic with dimples outside.

Does the shape of the dimples on a golf ball make a difference?

Well, the most common shape of dimple is the circular one. This is on nearly every golf ball and is on them for a reason, because it is the most efficient. Callway HX golf balls have hexagonal dimples, these give the ball a 100% dimple coverage and they believe it allows the ball to fly better, and be more stable in the air.

What do the different numbers of dimples on a golf ball mean?

There is no meaning in the amount of dimples a golf ball has; this number is just determined by the size of each dimple and how they have been placed on the ball.

Why does the Callaway golf ball have hexagonal dimples?

A few years ago they brought out the HX ball, the idea behind them was that the ball would have superior aerodynamic qualities because the hexagonal dimple alllowed nearly 100% coverage of the golf ball, with round dimples there is a lot of places where the dimples do not cover.

Are there the same amount of dimples on every golf ball?

No, each brand and each model may decide to use a different dimple pattern and therefore a different number of dimples. There is usually between 330 and 400 dimples on each golf ball.

What is dimple?

A Dimple is another word for a small dent (like dimples on a golf ball).

Does the amount of dimples on a golf ball effect the distance?

Yes because according to recent studies each dimple equals aprox. 1 meter in distance

Why do golf balls fly further than tennis balls?

There are several attributes of a golf ball that make it fly farther than a tennis ball. A golf ball is smaller than a tennis ball, so it has less surface area, which means it experiences less drag (air resistance) as it hurtles through the air. Furthermore, the tennis ball's surface is fuzzy, which increases its air resistance, whereas a golf ball's jacket is hard and dimpled, which improves its aerodynamic properties, increasing its distance when struck. Many different dimple patterns and designs have been experimented with to increase a golf ball's "length." A golf ball is more rigid and elastic than a tennis ball. It resists deformation much more than a tennis ball does, and when deformed, it returns to its original shape more quickly. This means that more kinetic energy -- of the club in the case of the golf ball and the racket for a tennis ball -- is transferred to the ball to propel it and is not wasted on deforming it. Incidentally, experiments have proved that the golf ball is the fastest moving object in all of sports (not counting the shooting sports, of course). ADDITION: The ball in JAI ALIA is the fastest ball in sports.

How can you tell if a golf range ball is limited flight?

Once you hit it you will know. If you don't get to hit it, it may say on it. 'Top Flite' is a major supplier of Golf Range balls, and they are frequently co-branded including the 'Top Flite' name on the ball This is what they (Top Flite) say 'We have found a way to slow the ball down. Top-Flite® Range Limited Flight balls utilize a unique, patented dimple pattern that limits the carry of the ball without sacrificing feel and trajectory, making them ideal for ranges with limited space' These balls are not marked as range limited, and the driving ranges usually do not provide this information Further, as well as using the 'dimple pattern' to increase drag on the ball, they are typically 2% lighter in mass when measured against standard golf balls, which also acts to slow down the ball and hence reduce the carry distance of shots
