A Bowling ball. An official NBA Basketball weighs 22 ounces, which is less than two pounds. The bowling balls little kids play with weigh 6 to 8 pounds, and adults play with balls weighing from 12 to 16 pounds. Wiki User

The inertia of an object is dependent on its mass. A bowling ball has a greater mass than a Baseball so a greater force must be applied to a bowling ball than would be applied to a baseball to make them both roll at the same speed.   Wiki User

I may not be positive, but considering a baseball is lighter, I would have to go with the bowling ball being harder to move.   Wiki User

Because bowling balls are denser, therefore being 'heavier' than baseballs. That means it takes more energy to throw.   Wiki User

It depends on how hard you throw/hit the ball. On average though, it is the Golf ball.   Wiki User

A bowling ball has more mass and is pulled by gravity, creating more resistance than a golf ball.   Wiki User

### Which exerts a gravitational force a baseball a football or a bowling ball?

A bowling ball since it has more mass. However, both the ping pong ball and the bowling ball are subjected to the same acceleration due to gravity, specifically 9.82 m s-2 and, neglecting air resistance, would fall at the same rate of speed.

### Which exerts more gravitational force a baseball a football or a bowling ball?

The object with the most mass, as gravitational force is dependent on mass. Therefore the bowling ball exerts more gravitational force than a baseball or a football.

### Which has a greater force a bowling ball or an apple?

An apple because if you put it on someones stomache it will want to move around more than the bowling ball would

### Does a bowling ball have more force than a feather?

Well according to the equation Force = Mass x Acceleration. A bowling ball has more mass than a feather but it all depends on how much acceleration each is undergoing. Potentially a feather can have more force (if the bowling ball has an acceleration of zero, then there is no force being produced, and if the feather is accelerating at any speed greater than zero, thentechnicallyit has more force)

### Could you give an example about 'an instance where you see more mass causes less acceleration when there is a constant force?

A baseball player can throw a baseball 90 m.p.h. What if you asked him to throw a bowling ball? It doesn't go nearly as fast or as far. The acceleration is much less, not because the baseball player is suddenly applying less force, but because the object he is applying the force to has much greater mass.

### Does rolling soccer ball needs more force to stop than a rolling bowling ball?

Any amount of force can stop either kind of ball. But a greater force is required to stop a bowling ball than to stop a soccer ball IN THE SAME TIME, because the bowling ball has more mass, and therefore more momentum and more kinetic energy.

### A 10 kg bowling ball would require what force to accelerate it down an alley at a rate of 3 meters per second per second?

Ignoring friction and air resistance, it would require a force of 30 Newtons.

### How much force N is needed to knock over a bowling pin?

since force is mass and acceleration the force needed to knock over a bowling depends on the mass of bowling and it acceleration.

### What would be bettrr the gravitational force between two feathers or two bowling balls assuming the distance between them is equal?

If by "better" you mean "stronger", the greater masses will cause a stronger gravitational force.

### When a bowling ball collides with a bowling pin what happens to the force?

it knocks the pins down.

### Which ball requires the greatest force to move it golf ball basketball baseball bowling ball?

the bowling ball will be the one that requires the most force to push,however it has the most potential energy so once it starts rolling it will roll for a long time depending on the surface it is traveling on.
