Its momentum is due to the amount of energy transfered from club to ball. There are a few factors in this transfer, the speed of the club head, the compression of the club face and most importantly the compression of the Golf ball.

Why does a golf ball make a bigger dent in the sand when dropped above the sand at higher heights?

It has more momentum from a higher height. Because momentum is always conserved, and momentum is the product of mass times velocity, more sand particles must move away faster in order to conserve the momentum of a heavy ball moving fast. The ball is moving faster from a higher height because the acceleration due to gravity (-9.81 m/s^2) increases the velocity of a falling object after each second its been falling.


How magnetic moment of electron is associated with angular momentum of electron?

magnetic moment of a particle is due to its motion around some other orbits or about its own orbit i.e due to its orbital angular momentum or its spin angular momentum.


Damage is more when two bodies collide from opposite directions than when they collide at any other angle.Is it due to the momentum of the objects or their relative velocities?

It is due to the momentum of the two bodies.


Can you change kinetic energy without changing momentum?

No, momentum and kinetic energy for all classical particles depend only on their mass and their velocity. Due to the fact that momentum and KE both depend on the same factors, they cannot be changed independently. Kinetic energy = 0.5mv2 Momentum = mv


What makes a soccer ball bounce?

A soccer ball bounces do the principles of dynamics, the branch of physics which deals with objects in motion. The materials a soccer ball is composed of, has a high degree of elasticity. This means that the stresses induced into a ball by a collision has greater potential to retain its shape rather than failing and rupturing. Due to this elastic property and the law of conservation of momentum (which states that the total momentum of any closed system is constant, meaning it loses no energy) when the ball is kicked, or impacts against something, the energy is transferred into the ball or the object it impacts. Depending on the exact type of collision (depends on all materials invovled) the ball may lose energy, but will often retain a portion of it, causing the ball to deflect off the object it impacts resulting in the bounce.

What makes a golf ball bounce?

AnswerIt has to do with the material a golf ball is made out of. It is a extremely strong material. A golf ball needs to bounce high to be able to get hit by a golf club and fly through the air and hit the ground and bounce. Due to that information a golf ball will bounce highest compared to almost ANY other balls. A golf ball is the winner of bouncing the highest.


What is the density of a hollow golf ball?

The density of a golf ball with the full contents is about .65 ounces per cubic inch. With the air inside, a golf ball will have a much smaller density, though due to the layers found in a golf ball, this will vary based on how 'hollow' the ball is made, as well as what manufacturer is used.


If a golf ball and a bowling ball are rolled toward each other when they collide and the bowling ball stops how does the golf balls speed compare with the bowling balls speed?

the golf ball stopped but the bowling ball keep rolling due to their different size and weight.as we know bowling ball is bigger in size as well as weight so it will face more fictin force and stops early as compare to golf ball when they collide and at the same time bowling ball poshes the golf ball back.so the golf ball stops and the golf ball keeps rolling.


How high will a golf ball bounce if it is dropped 60 Feet?

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.

How many parts to a golf ball?

There are at least 3 parts to a golf ball. The core, the wind, and the outer cover. However, some of the new hi-tech balls may have more parts due to how they were designed.


Which ball will bounce first a bouncy ball or a golf ball?

Since the rate of acceleration due to gravity is equal for all objects, the ball you drop first will most likely bounce first.


The motion of a 150g ball is more difficult to change than the motion of a 50g ball Why?

Due to the greater mass, the momentum will high, hence making its motion difficult to change.
