This bouncing ball kit is perfect for any scientist looking to have some fun. With just water and the included instructions, you can create your own bouncing ball in no time. Perfect for a rainy day or a party game, this kit is sure to keep everyone entertained.
The higher the starting height of the ball, the higher the ball’s potential energy. The earth’s gravity needs time to accelerate, or speed up, the ball when you let go of it, the longer an object falls, the faster it gets. When the ball is dropped the potential energy turns into kinetic energy. The faster an object moves, the higher its kinetic energy. When the ball hits the ground, the kinetic energy goes into the ball and giving it the force to bounce back up.
