A ping pong ball will bounce higher then a Basketball when dropped at the same height. The transfer of kinetic energy is greater in the lighter ping pong ball.
Take a ping pong ball and mark an 'X' on it. This 'X' will represent the side of the moon we can see in the night sky from Earth. Naturally, the opposite side of the ping pong ball will represent the side we cannot see from Earth (the far side of the moon). Get a basketball. This will represent the Earth. Take the ping pong ball and make the 'X' face the basketball. Move the ping pong ball around the basketball while keeping the 'X' facing the same direction you started with-do not rotate the ping pong ball. You are simulating the moon orbiting the Earth. If you watch where the 'X' is while the ping pong ball is circling the basketball, you will notice that at some point, all sides of the ping pong ball will end up facing the basketball-this is also what would happen if the moon did not rotate. We would be able to see all sides of the moon. The ping pong ball is not rotating hence we would be able to see all sides of the moon (including the far side). We cannot see about one-half of the moon at any time so we know that it must rotate-it's just that one side is always facing us (due to tidal locking).
it is my understanding that a tennis ball has more mass compared to a ping pong ball. if something has a larger mass it can carry a larger amount of energy and the more energy it has the further it goes.
The ping pong ball is made from celluloid.
If the Sun was the size of a basketball Venus would be a ping-pong ball, really Hope this helps coz it's true
Because the friction force between a ping pong ball and air is very small.
The harder you bounce the ping pong ball the higher it goes........the softer you bounce a ping pong ball the shorter it bounces. You control the heighth.
A golf ball will bounce higher. It has more mass so it is less influenced by air resistance.
Yes, they are harder, and more force can be applied to make them bounce, also have bound rubber cord inside.
For a better bounce on the table.
A ping pong ball
It will bounce, but in a very awkward and unpredictable direction because of the stubble on the concrete
This cannot be answered. It all depends on how hard the ball was bounced.
Because it doesn't weigh much and it is hard, and you are hitting it against another hard surface, the ping pong table.
Depends on the gravitating body and the amount of atmosphere killing its momentum.
Diameter of the ping pong ball should be 40 mm and the weight should be 2.7 gram. The ping pong ball must have 0.4 coefficient of restitution. Depending on the bounce, roundness and consistency of the ping pong ball, single star, two star or three star ratings are marked on the ball. A ball with a three star rating normally implies highest quality ball. www.amworld.info
