# Does Bounciness Affect Golf Ball Distance?

Medium
Ever wondered why a golf ball bounces? In this experiment, you'll drop golf balls from a height of one meter and measure the distance they travel when hit with a golf club. You'll discover which type of golf ball travels the furthest.

## Hypothesis

The hypothesis is that bouncier golf balls will travel further than less bouncy ones.

## Method & Materials

You will drop golf balls from a height of one meter and count the number of bounces. Then, you will bring golfers to a driving range and measure the distance each ball travels when hit with a golf club.
You will need 15 golf balls, 3 amateur golfers, 5 golf clubs, a measuring tape, a golf driving range, and an assistant to help with the measurement.

## Results

The results showed that the bouncier balls traveled the furthest, while the least bouncy traveled the shortest distance. The bouncier balls probably bounced a greater number of times and over a larger distance.

## Why do this project?

This science project is interesting because it shows how the bounciness of a golf ball affects the distance it will travel.

## Also Consider

Consider changing the size of the golf club used or changing the temperature of the ball by placing it in hot or cold water before repeating the experiment.
