What unit of measure do scientists use to measure a bowling ball?

The answer will depend on what characteristic of the ball is being measured: its radius, volume, mass, weight, shine?

Which has more mass a bowling ball or a table tennis ball?

a bowling ball

Which one would go faster with the same kinectic energy bowling ball or a golf ball?

Kinetic energy is a function of mass and velocity. Therefore, an object with more mass, such as a bowling ball, would have to go slower than an object with less mass, such as a golf ball. So, if given the same amount of kinetic energy, a bowling ball will go faster than a golf ball, because it has more mass.

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.

Would a bowling ball roll farther than a ping pong ball?

In deep space, free of other gravitational influences, theoretically, yes. All objects with mass have "gravity" -- as long as the bowling ball contains more mass, there ought to be a particular velocity at which a golf ball would orbit it.

The mass of a bowling ball is 7.25 what?


Is the mass of a bowling ball greater than the mass of a soccer ball?

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 would you measure the mass of a bowling ball with?

The tool used would be a scale or balance. You might have to use a box to keep it from rolling off the scale surface. Measure the mass of the box, then the mass of the combination then subtract the box's mass. Common unit is pounds in the United States (that's how they are designated), and I'd guess kilograms in other countries.

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 of this object that has more inertia Bowling ball or tennis?

Since the lightest tenpin bowling ball is currently 6 pounds and a table tennis ball is not even an ounce, the tenpin bowling ball is heavier.

What is the mass of a 7.0-kilogram bowling ball on the surface of the moon?

Gravity does not affect total mass, no matter where in the universe the bowling ball travels. Therefore, a 7 kilogram bowling ball will always be 7 kilograms.

Which exerts a gravitational force a baseball a football or a bowling ball?

A bowling ball since it has more mass. However, both the ping pong ball and the bowling ball are subjected to the same acceleration due to gravity, specifically 9.82 m s-2 and, neglecting air resistance, would fall at the same rate of speed.
