# Will a golf ball travel farther than any other golf ball when hit by a golf club if the golf ball bounces higher than the other golf balls when dropped from the same distance?

Yes, theoretically.

The Golf ball's rate of transferring energy (in this case elastic) is dependent on its COR (coefficient of restitution) - which is basically a rate of how rigid the shell is.

In simple words, yes. The golf ball that bounces higher than other golf balls is bouncier than the other golf balls. If you hit a rubber ball with a golf club, the ball should travel farther than all the regular golf balls.

it depends on your swing speed if you have a slower swing you want a softer ball like a ladies ball. if you have a faster swing you want a harder ball like a mens ball, my preference is the pro v1x.

No, not all golf balls travel the same distance when hit. This is because all golf balls are made differently. Some golf balls are distance golf balls which have low spin, and they also have a harder core which means they go farther, but feel and spin are sacrificed. Some golf balls like the pro v 1 do have responsive cores but they are soft and allow for a lot of spin, therefore they do not go as far, but have a lot of feel. We are not talking 50 yards here, we are talking probably less than 10.

### How does the height a boucny ball is dropped from effect the height it bounces to?

The higher the height the ball is dropped from, the higher the height it will bounce to.

### Does the size of a ball effect how high it bounces?

Not to any appreciable extent. Bounce is caused by the elasticity of the material comprising the ball and the surface on which it is bounced.For example, on concrete a basketball will bounce higher than a baseball, but a golf ball--How high it bounces depends on how much force you exert on it. If you only let it drop, it will not bounce higher that the point you dropped it from and every time it bounces, it will go less and less high. anyway, the bigger the ball, the more force you will have to exert on it to make it bounce higher than the point it was dropped, or "bounced" from.

### Why does a tennis ball bounce higher on harder surfaces?

Because the hard surface doesn't absorb any of the energy of the tennis ball - thus the ball bounces higher than if it was dropped on a softer surface.

### Which is farther 260.056 or 260.41?

Assuming the two numbers are measuring the same distance, the higher number will represent the greater distance, in this instance, 260.41.

### How does temperature affect the height that a dropped ball bounces?

When the ball is at a low temperature, the molecules are not flexible and bounce only to a small height. On the other hand, if the ball is warm or at a higher temperature, it will bounce longer heights.

### Why is it that the higher you drop a ball the higher it bounces?

Because there is more pressure pushing onto it

If you were bouncing them both, a basketball would bounce higher.

### How high does a golf ball bounce after being dropped 5 ft?

Due to a golf ball being so hard it hits the ground the energy is so strong it bounces up higher than any other ball. A golf ball is so hard and that energy just can't wait to get released and bounces up very high. There is many layers in a golf ball. All the layers are Sort of like rubber material so then that is why a golf ball bounces the highest.
