Theory on bouncing balls

  1. Nov 14, 2006 #1
    hi all

    I'm doing an experimental investigation for a school project on bouncing basketballs. I've linked this project with kinetic and potential energy (i.e i've written how kinetic and potential play a role in the resultant rebound height) and i'm wondering if anyone knows any other theories/formula i can link my project to.

    air resistance

    how about air resistance have you considered that?

    i've decided to neglect air resistance. I'm thinking of observing the affects of heated surfaces.
