I know from experience that the best air pressure for bouncing a basketball is as full as you can get it.
The more air pressure within a basketball, the more capable it is to bounce efficiently, rather than a basketball with little air pressure.
the more air pressure that better it bounces
The answer depends on the pressure when the air is let out of the basketball.
it will go into the air
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.
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.
Yes. A full basketball with medium to high pressure will clearly bounce higher than a flat basketball with low pressure.
1.5 Kilos is the heaviest a basketball can weigh, if aired up to its highest possible air pressure. But at recommended air pressure a basketball will weigh about 800 grams.
== == The proper air pressure in an NBA basketball is around 7 1/12 to 8 1/2 lbs.
NBA regulation requires to be 7.5 to 8.5 pounds in air pressure.:)
NBA rules state a basketball's air pressure should be between 7.5 and 8.5 pounds.
The pressure from the air inside of it
pressure gauge is the only exact way
The pressure inside the stadium. WHAT DO YOU THINK!!!
Air pressure in a room is less than that of a basketball since it does not crush the basketball. Think of the crushed can experiment. If you empty a soda can, flip it upside down, put it (carefully) on a boiling pot of water, the can will fill with hot air. You then transfer the can on a container with cold water (making sure the opening of the can is covered with the cold water). You should see the can implode or at least the outside air pressure (since it's greater than that of the air pressure in the can) crush the can. Opposite of the basketball.
Pressure is the ratio of mass per volume. Adding more air (mass) into the fixed volume of the ball increases the pressure inside it. A basketball cannot expand much even when the pressure inside is higher than the outside air.
Because - the skin of the basketball 'locks' the air inside so it can't dissipate. The more air you pump into it - the higher the pressure gets.... until it bursts.
