The coefficient of restitution is how you quantify bounciness or give bounciness a number, and you do that by dividing the bounce height by the drop height, then finding the square root of that. When you have more bounces you can find more than one coefficient of restitution!

### Why the value of coefficient of restitution of a perfectly plastic impact is 0?

Physicists distinguish between elastic and inelastic (and partially elastic) collisions. If you mean "elastic", the coefficient of restitution is 1. If you mean "inelastic", the coefficient of restitution is 0.Why? Because that's how "elastic" and "inelastic" collisions are DEFINED. If all the kinetic energy is maintained, the coefficient (relative speed after collision, divided by relative speed before the collision) is 1 - i.e., no movement is lost. If it is zero, all the movement energy (relative speed) is lost.

### What do balls have inside to make them bounce?

Different balls have different things inside them. Some modern golf blls are massive polyurethane. A tennis ball, foot ball and soccer ball has air under pressure. a ingpong ball relies on the coefficient of restitution of the plastic (and the trapped air inside). Generally a material that can be deformed and regain its shape quickly (a high coefficient of restitution).
