What ball has a greater density softball or soccer ball?

A softball is more dense than a soccer ball.

Which has greater density a bowling ball or a soccer ball?

Density is defined as the ratio between mass and volume. Since a bowling ball is much much heavier than a soccer ball (which is mainly filled with air), a bowling ball is much denser.

What is the density of a soccer ball?

It's not correct to talk about "density" of a soccer ball. It's better you say "average density" of a soccer ball. It's clear that any soccer ball consists of different materials such as leather/plastic, rubber, and air. It order to find the average density you have to find the mass of a soccer ball and divide it by it's volume (in the first approximation you neglect the thickness of the shell (leather and rubber coats)).

What has a greater density a bowling ball or a soccer ball explain?

Because a soccer ball is made of "polished" pieces of fabric sown together and a bowling ball is made of Urethane, which is optimized ceramic material which has been partially hollowed and a core has been placed in the middle, I would say bowling ball.

If soccer ball and a bowling ball are about the same size why does the bowling ball have more mass?

A soccer ball is hollow and filled with air, which has little density. A bowling ball is solid material of a much greater density. * Because bowling balls have a standard size, about 21.8 cm in diameter, bowling balls weighing less than 5.4 kg (12 lb) will float in water.

What object has greater density a balloon or a bowling ball?

There's going to be a greater density in the bowling ball, because its ALOT heavier and isn't hallow like the balloon.

Which ball has more kinetic energy a soccer ball or a billard ball for playing pool?

billard ball because it has more density

Is the mass of a bowling ball greater than the mass of a soccer ball?

Yes, because a bowling ball is more dense than a soccer ball. A bowling ball is solid all throughout while a soccer ball has its outer layer, but has air inside of it. Hope that this answer helps! :)

What makes a bowling ball harder to stop than a soccer ball when they are both traveling at the same speed?

The bowling ball is harder to stop because it has a greater mass, and therefore a greater momentum. But the answer is that the bowling ball has a greater mass.

Why is a bowling ball heavier than a basketball?

A bowling ball's density is greater than a basketball

Why does a tennis ball go farther and higher than a soccer ball with the same mass?

That is because of air resistance. Since the soccer ball has a greater surface area (and holds the same shape as the tennis ball), it will see greater air resistance against that surface, thus slowing it and stopping it quicker.

Why balloon has greater buoyant force than a bowling ball?

Balloons have greater buoyant force as the air inside has lesser density than a bowling ball's material. Density is inversely related to Buoyant force.

A volleyball is dropped from a cliff and a soccer is thrown upward from the same position when each ball reaches the ground at the bottom of the cliff the volleyball will hit the ground with greater?

The volleyball will NOT hit the ground with greater anything. Assuming that the soccer ball is the same spherical diameter and greater mass than the volleyball it will hit the ground with greater velocity and greater impact.

If a bowling ball and a soccer ball are rolling along the ground at the same speed the bowling ball has more of this because its mass is greater?


Will a bowling ball float?

no unless it is floating on a liquid with a density greater than that of the bowling ball.

Why bowling ball is heavier than volleyball?

Greater density. Made of a heavier material, and not hollow.

If a black ball is denser than a white ball of the same size the black ball has?

The black ball has greater mass. Mass is the product of volume and density.

Does a solid have the greatest density?

For a given material, while the material itself has the same density, a solid OBJECT of EQUAL VOLUME has greater density than if light weighted. For example a one inch diameter solid ball has greater density than a one inch diameter hollow ball.

You have density of 3 equal size balls if density of one ball is twice that of the other 2 what conclusion can you draw about its mass?

Density is mass divided by volume. If the density is greater and the volume is the same then the mass must also be greater for the same size balls.

Why isn't soccer called soccer ball?

It isn't called soccer ball because the soccer ball is the ball you use in soccer. See? I have actually heard people call it soccer and soccer ball.

How does the soccer ball go at such a high speed when it's in the air?

A soccer ball can go at such high speed when it is in the air because it does not have the same wind drag as it would at lower levels. This enables the ball to go not only faster, but it can travel for a greater distance.

If 2 minerals have the same mass why does one have a greater density?

Think of it this way if you have a golf ball and a wiffle ball they are the same size but they don't weight the same. The golf ball weighs more because it has a greater density In a more mathematical sense, density = mass / volume. If both minerals had the same mass, the more dense one must have a smaller volume.

Why won't a golf ball float on top of water?

The golf ball's density is greater than the water, which the water has adensity of 1.

Which will travel farther a soccer ball full of helium or a soccer ball full of air?

This has actually been tested on the "Mythbusters" television program, only with American footballs. The answer is that it really doesn't matter much because the weight of the ball and air resistance include forces that far exceed the difference that air density versus helium density might cause.

Will an aluminum ball with a density of 2.70 g ml sink or float in a beaker of water?

Of course, water's density is 1 gram/ml. So if the aluminum ball's density is 2.70 g/ml, then it would sink because it is clearly greater than 1.
