Introduction. This soccer science fair project serves to acquaint students with basic information on how the amount of air in a soccer ball can affect the distance it travels when kicked with a consistent force. The greater the air pressure in the ball, the farther it will travel when a force is applied.

If a soccer ball has a high amount of air pressure pumped into it, the ball will travel further when it is kicked because of its stiffness and firm shape it has. This happens because when you kick a well pumped ball it transfers more energy to the ball, which allows it to travel a further distance. On the other hand, if you kicked a ball which had a lesser amount of air pressure inside of it, the ball will travel a shorter distance because most of the energy is lost to deformation of the ...
The amount of air or air pressure in a soccer ball effects how far the ball will travel when struck by the same force. The higher air pressure that is put into a soccer ball improves the ball’s rebound off the foot of a player. More energy is transferred to a “stiff” ball in an elastic collision.
The higher the air pressure inside the soccer ball, the farther it will go when it is kicked, writes engineer and soccer ball enthusiast Bruce Rigsby on the site Soccer Ball World.com. Your kick transfers more energy to a stiff ball, compared to a spongy one, as less of the energy is lost to deformation of the ball’s surface.
Does the Amount of Air Pressure in a Soccer Ball Affect How Far it Travels When Force is Applied? Air pressure affects us humans in many different ways. First, there is a certain amount of air sitting above your body in the Earth's atmosphere. The more air above your body, the
Some people think that the air pressure in a soccer ball doesn't effect how far the ball will travel, and that it only depends on how hard the person kicks the ball. This is a myth. Air pressure effects how the ball will travel.
Anonymous answered. Of course. A completely flat ball has increased air resistance and almost no elasticity and cannot be kicked far at all. That's an extreme example but generally the harder a ball is pumped up the further it can be kicked. Thank Writer.
