Will a basketball blow up if you put helium in it?

That all depends how much helium you put in it. A basketball should be able to take the same amount of pressure, whether it's pressure from air or helium. So, if you inflate it only to the recommended pressure, it should be a problem. The same amount of pressure of helium will be less mass, so in the end the basketball will be lighter, as you would probably expect, by a very small amount.

Why does pumping air into a basketball increase the pressure inside the ball?

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.

What happens when atmospheric pressure is greater than fluid pressure?

Okay i think i might know but i'm not sure but i think this can never happen because if it did the atmospheric pressure would crush us. our fluids in our bodies exert pressure on the atmospheric pressure(the same amount) and pretty much neutralize the effect!

How does temperature affect how high or low a basketball bounces?

when the temperature is cold, the air inside the basketball will shrink, and hotter temperatures will expand the air creating more air pressure inside the ball making it bounce better, try putting a balloon in the freezer and seeing how much it shrinks and expands when you take it out. But what would happen if the pressure in the basketball was the same in the warm and cold conditions? The colder ball would have to have more mass of air inside of it. At least to first order, they response to the external impact would be the same. I would bet that the stiffer rubber would still make the cold ball bounce lower than the warm one, but it would be an interesting experiment. Remember that air affects the height the basketball bounces. Colder air is more dense and therefore has more friction than warm air. The difference isn't entirely noticeable in something as big as a basketball but for example in badminton the shuttlecock which has high air resistance responds differently in different climates. You need to buy either faster or slower shuttles depending on the temperature on the day.
