Which has more inertia a bowling ball or beach ball?

Most likely the bowling ball. According to the laws of physics, an object with more inertia accelerates slower but is harder to stop. The bowling ball accelerates slowly but has a high mass. The beach ball accelerates quickly but has a low mass. So the bowling ball has more inertia.

Why is it easier to stop a soccer ball than a bowling ball?

It depends on how fast they're going. A bowling ball is much heavier, therefore has more momentum if they're both travelling at the same speed.

Which has more momentum a golf ball or a bowling ball?

A bowling ball has more momentum. You cannot throw it as fast, but a tenpin ball weighs 16 pounds and a baseball only 1/3 pound. Momentum is mass times velocity and if you throw the bowling ball at 10 mph but the baseball at 90 mph the bowling ball still has much more momentum.

Why is it harder to overcome the inertia of a bowling ball than a baseball?

The only real way to answer this is to define the terms, then it should make sense. Mass - How much of something there is, and what its made of. A rock and a spunge may be the same size, but the rock has more mass. Gravity - The force of attraction between any two objects. Usually the Earth, and somthing else. Based on the masses of the two objects. Weight - The amount of force due to gravity. A rock on earth will weigh less on mars because the mass of mars is less than the mass of earth. This is also why you don't feel 'weight' between you and your cup of coffee. The masses of the two objects is much too small to be felt. This is the same thing as 'heavy,' just a different word. Inertia - Refers to how much energy you need to get an object moving. The more mass an object has, the more inertia it has. This is totally independent from gravity or weight. With those definitions, you should be able to figure it out. Bowling balls are heavier because they have more mass, and they are heavy because of gravity. Also, bowling balls have more inertia, because they have more mass.

If a golf ball and a bowling ball collide and the bowling ball keeps moving How did the golf ball's speed compare with the bowling ball's speed?

The force of the bowling ball colliding with the golf ball causes the golf ball to be redirected in an elastic collision. How fast either travels depends on the friction of the surface and the angle of contact with the bowling ball.Comparative Masses and EnergyIn the collision between a golf ball and a bowling ball, the fact that the bowling ball continues to move (although possibly changed in direction) is a function of the comparative masses of the two. The bowling ball is much more massive, so at normal velocities its kinetic energy exceeds the kinetic energy of the golf ball. In order to "stop" the bowling ball, the golf ball would have to make a perfectly aimed collision, and have a much higher velocity. Quantitatively, the velocity of the golf ball would have to be the inverse ratio of the ratio of the masses of the two balls, so that the kinetic energy (mass times velocity) is equal and in the opposite direction.Example : Golf ball at 45 g, ten pound bowling ball at 4500 g -- the golf ball would have to move at 100 times the velocity of the bowling ball to counteract its kinetic energy. If the bowling ball rolls at 2 m/sec, the golf ball would have to travel at more than 200 m/sec (720 kph or 447 mph), about 3 times a ball's normal velocity off the face of a golf club.

A 10kg bowling ball rolls off the table and strikes the ground if the ball is in the air for 8 seconds how fast is the ball moving when it hits the ground?

As is typical of this type of question, I am going to assume that the falling bowling ball is not affected by the friction of the air through which it falls. The formula for velocity is v = gt where g is acceleration due to gravity, 9.8m/sec2 After 8 seconds, the ball is falling at v = 9.8m/sec2 * 8 sec = 78.4 m/sec. If it really has a mass of 10kg, it's not a bowling ball. Bowling balls are limited to about 7.27 kg.

What has more inertia a balloon or a cinder block?

Inertia is the ability of the object to resist changes in the state of motion. It would be harder to push a cinder block and make it accelerate. Therefore, the cinder block has more inertia. The more mass, the more inertia.

Why does a tsunami move faster than a regular wave?

That's because a tsunami contains thousands of more gallons than a regular wave. Example: In a bowling lane, a bowling ball (tsunami) is heavier and it can easily knock down pins. It's fast and heavy. If you tried to knock over the pins with a bouncy ball (regular wave), not much pins would be knocked over.. Though this explains why a tsunami can do so much damage, it does not explain how it moves faster. in a bowling alley both a bowling ball and a bouncy ball would move at the same speed.

Does the size of the ball effect how fast it falls?

Everything falls at the same speed. the only variable is drag. For instance a feather & a bowling ball would fall at the same speed in a vacuum, but not through the air.

What is the bowling speed for a 12 year old?

Doppler effect : we can measure the speed of ball Doppler principle .we transmit continuous pulse at ball at instant that echo reflect that change in trasmiting and receiving frequncy we can calculate the speed of ball.

Where to bowl the when bowling fast?


How does the moon influence the earths axial tilt?

The moon stabilizes the Earth's axial tilt, like a counter balance. Picture someone swinging a bowling ball around their body, at the end of a 3 foot (1 meter) chain. If they get the ball spinning fast enough, they will have to lean back to counter the centrifugal force of the bowling ball. When the rotational velocity is stable, and the person's angle of leaning is stable, it is a suitable representation of the Earth-Moon system. The bowling ball is the moon, the person is the Earth.
