If you have the equipment you can film the bounce with a height metric in the background so that the cameral will catch the object as it bounces up against the height metric (e.g., a meter stick). If the camera is really special and you can take slo mo pictures that's even better because you can see the exact moment the object reaches max height on the meter stick.

A less precise method would be to time the fall from the max bounce height. In which case the height the ball fell from would be calculated as h = 4.9 T^2 where T is the timed fall in seconds and h is the bounce height in meters.

The simplest way is to measure it using a metric measure tape. An alternative is to measure your height in inches and multiply the answer by 2.54

Yes - the greater the height an item dropped the resulting bounce is higher

you throw it on the ground really hard and measure the height of which it reaches on the first bounce

Height of bounce will not depend on the mass at all. It depends on the elasticity of the ball and the height where from it is dropped.

Yes it does

The height you drop the ball from will affect the bounce height this is because as the drop height increases so does the bounce height it is all to do with energy transfers. Also the waste energy is the sound and heat energy hope this helps.

the higher the grass the higher the bounce.
