Best Answer

Yes, because a Bowling ball is more dense than a soccer ball. A bowling ball is solid all throughout while a soccer ball has its outer layer, but has air inside of it. Hope that this answer helps! :)

What makes a bowling ball harder to stop than a soccer ball when they are both traveling at the same speed?

The bowling ball is harder to stop because it has a greater mass, and therefore a greater momentum. But the answer is that the bowling ball has a greater mass.

If a bowling ball and a soccer ball are rolling along the ground at the same speed the bowling ball has more of this because its mass is greater?


Which has greater density a bowling ball or a soccer ball?

Density is defined as the ratio between mass and volume. Since a bowling ball is much much heavier than a soccer ball (which is mainly filled with air), a bowling ball is much denser.

Which has more mass soccer ball or bowling ball?


If soccer ball and a bowling ball are about the same size why does the bowling ball have more mass?

A soccer ball is hollow and filled with air, which has little density. A bowling ball is solid material of a much greater density. * Because bowling balls have a standard size, about 21.8 cm in diameter, bowling balls weighing less than 5.4 kg (12 lb) will float in water.

Does rolling soccer ball needs more force to stop than a rolling bowling ball?

Any amount of force can stop either kind of ball. But a greater force is required to stop a bowling ball than to stop a soccer ball IN THE SAME TIME, because the bowling ball has more mass, and therefore more momentum and more kinetic energy.

A golf ball and bowling ball are rolling at the same speed. Which has the greater momentum?

the bowling ball because it has more mass; momentum is mass times velocity

Does the mass of your bowling ball make any difference in your bowling?

yes, the heavier your bowling ball is the more pins you are likely to knock down. A greater mass gives the ball power when driving into the pins.

Which has more kinetic energy beach ball or bowling ball?

If they are both moving at the same speed, then it would be the bowling ball because of its greater mass.

Why is it harder to overcome the inertia of a bowling ball than a baseball?

Greater mass.

Does a feather floating in the air have less momentum as a bowling ball on a shelf?

A bowling ball would have more momentum because it has a greater mass.

If a golf ball and bowling ball are moving at the same speed which has a greater momentum?

Probably the bowling bowl. Momentum is mass x velocity and a bowling ball is generally heavier than a golf ball.
