    a tennis ball has more elasticity and therefore compresses and recoils way more than the metallic ball so it bounces back...............

    Something related with change in momentum..

    hmm. exactly as the tennis ball recoils the change in momentum should be lesser than as compared to the metallic ball.......

    *recoils more

    But the answer is - The tennis ball suffers a greater change in momentum.

    oh 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..........

    Why momentum when it comes is lesser than when it goes?

    Will it go back with a greater velocity? What's recoil?

    recoiil is greater due to great elasticity

    elastic potential energy increases as it is compressed and converts into kinetic energy as it is uncompressed
