Abstract:
To begin your own investigation of the bounciness of balls, you'll need several different kinds of balls to compare. I'd suggest a golf ball, a tennis ball, a baseball, and a basketball for starters. Hold a ball at a measured height above a solid surface-- one meter is a good height. Now drop the ball and notice how high it bounces.
