    Bouncing Ball Experiment Our simple 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

    Bouncing Ball Investigation Aims: In This experiment, I'm going to discover how the surface affects the height that a of a tennis ball Introduction: All green plants are able to use light as a source of energy. Chlorophyll (green coloured pigment in leaves) absorbs light and changes it into chemical energy, which is used to power all the chemical reactions that go on in a plant cell. This is called photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is the process of producing glucose from sunlight

    Bouncing Ball Investigation This is an experiment to investigate bouncing balls and how they behave in different situations. Few independent variables will be changed, so the investigation is easy to manage, and the data is easier to process. The first independent variable that will be tested. The tennis ball is the constant variable factor (the variable that is kept the same, to make the investigation valid). The ball will dropped from increasing heights (cm-25, 50, 75,100,125,150,175

    the floor it has to transmit energy for the ball to come back into the air, or into your hands. Without the force of energy, you couldn’t handle the ball like the way you’re supposed to in the game. Why is it when you stop dribbling a basketball, the ball stops bouncing? Being a basketball player requires you to put force onto the ball, to make the ball bounce. Every time you dribble the ball energy is required. In this experiment you will see how the ball bounces on different surfaces such as wood

    any ball in general, it bounces back up. But how high does it bounce? If there is no other outside force acting on the ball such as a hand pushing down on the ball, the ball’s bounce will decrease each time it bounces until it eventually stops bouncing. The way the ball bounces is due to momentum and energy. Each time the ball bounces, it seems to lose energy because the height decreases by each bounce. However, the energy is not really lost, but rather transferred or changed. A bouncing ball has

    Bouncing Ball Experiment A squash ball is a hollow ball made of rubber, with air inside. Before starting a game of squash, most players will "warm up" the ball by knocking it around the court. This raises the temperature of the ball and increases the "bounciness". In this experiment you can investigate the effect of temperature on the height to which a ball bounces. An alternative experiment is to investigate how the height of each successive bounce changes. Planning your experiment

    Investigating the Factors Affecting the Energy Transfer Involved In a Bouncing Ball Planning Factors affecting the energy of the ball bouncing are the height it is dropped from, the type of ball, e.g. is it bouncy or hard, the weight of the ball, and the height it is dropped from. The energy transfer is as follows: As it drops it has gravitational potential energy, and then as it is falling it has kinetic energy when it lands it has elastic potential energy and as it bounces back

    The Obvious-Bringing Wreck at the Asbury Lanes-LIVE! July 23rd Punk rock is a very different art form these days, mostly due to the fact that the real purveyors are either dead, retired, or on to different things. So what’s left is the imitation. And while imitation may be the most sincere form of flattery, it’s also a chance for new interpretations to rise from groups that follow the originals as influences and who have an eye on their own brand addition. Formed from the ideal of rebellion and

    Introduction Billiards, Pool or 8 Ball are the names given to this game. For many of us 8 Ball is a game that we play at friends' place or at pool houses, pubs and a good many other places. But when you are playing 8 Ball you would never really think about physics would you? But it is there, and it is in play everytime the cue hits the ball to make it curve, everytime you jump the ball over another or bounce it around the cushioned sides to get the white ball to connect with one of your own

    collisions hen bouncing golf, ping-pong, rubber and tennis balls, in the process finding which ball is the most energy efficient; which ball can get the closest to a perfectly elastic collision. Hypothesis: If a ping pong ball was dropped from a height of 100 cm. , it would bounce back to a height that exceeds a golf, rubber, or tennis. As the ping pong ball has a smaller mass than the other three balls, it will experience less drag on the way down to the ground. This will allow the ping-pong ball to gain
