Best Answer

If properly inflated, it will bounce 8 times. Each bounce rebounds about 70%, so 14 feet on the first bounce, then about 10 on the second, etc. until the ball is bigger than the bounce.

What is a compass jump?

Compass jumpsA compass jump is a bicycling trick where you keep your knees slightly bent, feet together and stay on your toes at all times - bounce and move your feet forward (north), bounce and bring your feet back to the starting point, bounce and move your feet to your right (east), bounce and bring your feet back to the starting point, bounce and move your feet to the rear (south), bounce and bring your feet back to the starting point, bounce and move your feet to your left (west), bounce and bring your feet back to the starting point, repeat.


How high can a basketball bounce?

If we knew from what height the ball, when dropped, would reach its terminal velocity, and if we knew the percentage of rebound the ball would give, we could then be certain. I can only guess that a basketball will rebound approximately 75% of the height from which it is dropped, and if the height at which it would reach terminal velocity is maybe 300 feet, the ball would bounce back up to 225 feet. Just a guess! A basketball has an elasticity (or "bounciness") of about 56 percent.I'm not sure there's a theoretical limit. In practice, of course, there would be one: when the velocity of the ball impacting the ground is so great the ball explodes rather than bouncing. But you'd have to fire it out of some kind of basketball cannon to get it moving that fast.The official standard for ball inflation is that the ball should bounce roughly 75% of its drop height (specifically, between 49" and 54") when dropped from 6 feet. If you're referring to just the height a dropped ball could bounce and you're not throwing it down with some kind of basketball-downward-hurling machine, you could calculate the theoretical bounce height by figuring out what terminal velocity is for a basketball, calculating how high you'd have to drop it from (assuming no atmosphere) to achieve that velocity, and then multiplying by 0.75. I'm not going to do it for you, because I'm not actually all that interested in the answer, but that's how you could do it if you are.
