## Which has more momentum a bowling ball or golf ball?

A bowling ball has more mass than a golf ball. More mass means more momentum.

## When a golf ball and a bowling ball are rolling at the same speed the ball has greater momentum?

Answer: Bowling ball has a greater momentum than a golf ball. Momentum is directly dependent on mass and velocity of the object. We are given that both the balls are moving with the same speed which means that the velocity of both the balls are same.

## Which ball goes fastest?

The fastest projectile speed in any moving ball game is c. 302km/h 188mph in Jai-Alai (Pelota). The most lethal ball of any sport, the pelota is 3/4 the size of a baseball and harder than a golf ball.

## How do you find the momentum of a bowling ball?

- p=mv.
- p=10 kg⋅3 m/s.
- =30 kg m/s.

## Why does a bowling ball and tennis ball fall at the same rate?

The tennis ball and the golf ball hit the ground at the same time. The Earth’s gravity is so strong that it pulls objects like these at the same speed.

## Can a bowling ball and a tennis ball have the same inertia Why or why not?

Distribution of Mass The tennis ball is hollow while the bowling ball is solid. This means that gram for gram the tennis ball will have a higher moment of inertia which means it takes a greater torque to get it rotate.

## How can a tennis ball and a bowling ball have the same momentum *?

A bowling ball and a tennis ball can have the same momentum, if the tennis ball with its smaller mass has a much larger velocity. The impulse acting on an object produces a change in momentum of the object that is equal in both magnitude and direction to the impulse.

## Which ball will come first?

As it turns out, the force of gravity tries to make everything accelerate downward at EXACTLY the same rate, no matter how light or heavy it is. This means that if you dropped a basketball and a tennis ball at the same time (from the same height) they will hit the ground at the same time (try it!).

## Which ball will fall faster?

Falling freely – at the same rate Right Lines: All objects fall freely at the same rate irrespective of mass (provided the effects of air resistance can be ignored).

## How fast is a shuttlecock?

## Will a golf ball fall faster than a bowling ball?

Mass And Gravity A smaller object is easier to move. But it also has less stuff for gravity to act on! The cool thing is these two factors exactly balance each other out. And that’s why any object, from dump trucks to linguini, falls at exactly the same rate as any other object.

## Does a bowling ball have more inertia than a golf ball?

Hence, the inertia of a bowling ball will be greater as it has more mass when compared to a golf ball.

## Does bowling have momentum?

Momentum in Bowling Angular Momentum : Angular momentum is the product of Moment of Inertia and Angular Velocity. Moment of Inertia is the angular counterpart to mass – it is the measure of the resistance of an object to changing its angular speed. The bowling ball progressing down the alley has angular momentum.

## Which ball will change more momentum?

(ii) The momentum of each ball will change by the same amount because the total momentum of the system (both balls) is conserved according to the law of conservation of momentum. However, the tennis ball will experience a larger change in momentum in proportion to its smaller mass, compared to the football.
