    Height of Bounce of a Squash Ball Physics Department ================== Experiment: Aim: To investigate if a squash ball will bounce higher than its average room temperature bounce, once the temperature inside of the ball has increased. Prediction: I predict that the ball will bounce higher than its average room temperature height once the temperature inside the ball has increased Hypothesis: I predict that the ball will bounce higher once it is heated because when

    Temperature on the Height a Squash Ball Bounce Aim: To investigate the effect of temperature on the height a squash ball bounces. Prediction: I think that the higher the temperature of the squash ball, the higher the squash ball will bounce. I think that as the temperature doubles so will the height of the bounce. I think that they will be directly proportional. Scientific Knowledge: If you drop a ball onto a hard floor. It will rebound, but even the bounciest ball will not bounce back to its

    Investigating the Effects of Temperature on the Bounce Height of a Squash Ball Aim: How temperature affects the bounce height of a squash ball. Prediction: I predict that the warmer the squash ball is the higher the bounce height of a squash ball will be. Apparatus: * water from a kettle * kettle * ruler * clamp * clamp stand * beaker * squash ball * thermometer Diagram: Method: § Collect all the equipment needed for this investigation. § Set

  • The Factors that Affect the Height at which a Dropped Squash Ball Bounces

    889 Words  | 4 Pages

    The Factors that Affect the Height at which a Dropped Squash Ball Bounces Height-The higher the squash ball is dropped the higher it will bounce because there will be more energy converted into elastic energy to propel the ball back up. Type of Ball- The type of ball would greatly affect the experiment because different types of balls have different amounts of elasticity so some would bounce higher. Temperature of the Ball- The temperature of the ball would affect the experiment because

  • Investigating the Bounce of a Tennis Ball after It Has Been Dropped From Certain Height

    Investigating the Bounce of a Tennis Ball after It Has Been Dropped From Certain Height Aim To investigate how high a tennis ball will bounce back after it has been dropped from a certain height How a Tennis Ball Bounces As the ball is elevated the ball gains gravitational potential energy equal to the ball's weight multiplied by its change in height1. When the ball is dropped, the height decreases, and therefore so does the gravitational potential energy. At the same time, the velocity

  • Investigating How the Height From Which a Table Tennis Ball is Dropped Affects Its Bounce

    1736 Words  | 7 Pages

    Investigating How the Height From Which a Table Tennis Ball is Dropped Affects Its Bounce When a table tennis ball is dropped onto a surface it bounces. The height of the bounce depends upon a number of factors; the pressure of the air in the ball, the height from which it is dropped, its material, mass and its temperature; the type of floor surface, its temperature and its angle; and the acceleration due to gravity, the temperature and the air resistance of the air that the ball will pass

    Investigate the factors that affect the bounce of a tennis ball. Key factors (variables): 1) Height of drop 2) Surface of bounce 3) Gravitational pull 4) Room temperature/ball temperature 5) Weight of ball 6) Material of ball 7) Brand of ball 8) Age/wear of ball 9) Size of ball 10) Force of drop/push How the key factors will affect the bounce: 1) The higher the drop the higher the bounce 2) The harder the surface the higher the bounce 3) The weaker the gravitational

    Squash Ball Investigation Aim The aim of my investigation is to investigate the factors which affect the bounce height of a squash ball. Factors I could investigate =========================== 1. Surface 2. Height 3. Weight of ball 4. Types of ball (dot colour) 5. Temperature of ball Chosen variable =============== I have chosen to change the height that I drop the squash ball from, as the other possible variables would be unsuitable for our investigation

  • Bouncing Ball Experiment

    experiment is to drop a ping pong ball weighed at 3 grams from a height of 1 metre then 90cm, 80cm, 70cm, 60cm, 50cm, 40cm and of course zero cm. From dropping the ball we can see how high the ball will bounce to after having a loss or gain of energy due to sound or movement of the ball as it hits a hard surface. I will drop the ball 3 times altogether, on the second bounce I will look specifically at the point it is likely to bounce to so the results will be more accurate. After doing this three

  • Temperature and Squash Balls Experiment

    Temperature and Squash Balls Experiment Introduction I am going to do an experiment on how high a squash ball bounces at different temperatures from the same height. Theory When a squash ball hits the wall the air molecules inside the ball heat up and make the ball warm. When they move faster they hit the rubber wall harder therefore makes the ball hotter. The reason why the ball moves faster is that when the ball hits the wall it causes friction and the molecules move faster
