the ball wont bounce high enough for you to bounce it.
Yes, it does with out air pressure the basketball will not bounce high as it's supposed to. It might also not bounce at all.
air pressure is what give the ball its weight and its bounce
The pressure from the air inside of it
Basketballs are inflated with air to make them bounce. When inflated, the basketball's elastic bladder is capable of rebounding when dropped or dribbled on a hard surface. In general, the higher the air pressure is inside the basketball, the higher it will bounce.
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.
The more air pressure within a basketball, the more capable it is to bounce efficiently, rather than a basketball with little air pressure.
enough to make it bounce
a heated basketball bounces higher. DUHHHH!?
If the ball is inflated (like a basketball or soccer ball) it will become harder as external air pressure is reduced. This will make it bounce higher. It will become softer as external air pressure is increased. It won't bounce as high then and eventually, as it becomes soft enough, it won't bounce at all. These statements assume that no air is added to or removed from the interior of the ball. I'm not sure what the effect would be on a solid rubber ball.
yes. higher pressure = better bounce
The air in a basketball lets the basketball bounce.
this is because rubber is flexable and it holds the air tightly so that no air can come out when it bounces
Yes. A full basketball with medium to high pressure will clearly bounce higher than a flat basketball with low pressure.
It would have too much bounce.
Several factors affect the bounce of a basketball including the height that it was dropped from. The bounce factor includes elasticity, air pressure, force applied to it, and how rigid the surface is that the ball is bounced on.
So the ball will not lie dead on the floor when you bounce when you pump air in it it will be lighter and bounce higher if you slam it hard enough
the temperature of a basketball effects it's bounce because the air partacles in the ball slow down causing it to lose pressure and it doesn't bounce as well. if a ball has more pressure it bounces better.
Helium will make a basketball bounce higher because when it is put into the basketball the air particles move faster and faster causing the basketball to bounce higher.
Yes, temperature affects the pressure of the air and when the pressure outside the ball is lower, the pressure inside will be greater, thus making it bounce better.
Air doesn't effect the bounce of the ball much higher air pressure the harder the ball lower pressure softer the ball temp effects it too colder soft warmer harder
will a basketball or a tennis ball bounce higher with more air?
I don't believe air pressure has any effect on a ball bouncing. Gravity on the other hand greatly effects how a ball bounces. the less gravity the more it bounces. On the other hand if you are referring to the air pressure inside of a ball that is a different story. The effect is the inverse, the lower the pressure the less the ball will bounce, where higher pressure will increase proportionatly a higher bounce to the ball.
The temperature of a room will effect the amount a ball will rebound (bounce) off the floor, off a backboard or rim. If a basketball is filled with air to the regulation pressure and then it is moved to a room with a higher temperature, the ball will soon start to bounce more. Alternatively if you move it a cooler room it will bounce less. This is because: Pressure = Volume x Temperature. As the temperature rises (assuming there is no leak in the ball to allow the volume of air to escape) the pressure on the inside of the ball will increase, this will increase the bounce of the ball. If, instead of the temperature rising, it decreases the pressure on the inside of the ball will go down and the bounciness of the ball will go down as well.
A basketball will lose it's bounce if it gets too cold. This is because the air molecules moving inside of the ball are moving slower causing the pressure inside of the ball to decrease.
