Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a tennis ball has more elasticity and therefore compresses and recoils way more than the metallic ball so it bounces back...............

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Something related with change in momentum..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm. exactly as the tennis ball recoils the change in momentum should be lesser than as compared to the metallic ball.......

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But the answer is  The tennis ball suffers a greater change in momentum.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh sry yeah the momentum as it comes in is lesser compared to the momentum when it goes out ..............sry the answer is rite............this is mainly due to elasticity...a metal ball will get a dent as it has negligible elasticity..........

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Why momentum when it comes is lesser than when it goes?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Will it go back with a greater velocity? What's recoil?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0elastic potential energy increases as it is compressed and converts into kinetic energy as it is uncompressed
