Description

Basketballs bounce a lot, but plastic balls don’t. Some objects are inherently bouncier than others. Why is that so? The answer lies in a property of the material which is known as the coefficient of restitution. In this video, we give a layman explanation of what the coefficient of restitution is, and how does it make stuff bouncy.
