Why do rubber balls bounce?

Explanation: When all three balls are dropped from the same height, the rubber ball will bounce the highest because it has the greatest elasticity. When the rubber ball hits the ground it gets compressed, or squished, and because it is very elastic, it quickly returns to its original shape.

Why do different balls bounce higher?

some balls are made of different materials, like one may be made of rubber and one may be made of plastic, if you drop them from the same heght and measure how high they each bounced, the rubber ball is gonna bounce higher. Also it can have to do with the size of the ball, ir you have two rubber balls, one 8 cm. in diameter and one 16 cm. in diameter and you drop them from the same height the bigger one is going to bounce higher. Hope i helped :-)

No, the glass ball would probably break. And the rubber ball allows for an elastic collision.

Why does a dead battery bounce?

If by bounce you mean like a rubber ball bounces: The bounce, or not is determined by the mechanical properties of the battery, and these doesn't change with the battery being charged or not. Dead, or fully charged, a battery will behave just the same when dropped.
