Problem 6E

Why is a soft, underinflated football at sea level much firmer when it is taken to a high elevation in the mountains?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 6E The hardness of a ball depends on its internal pressure versus the pressure outside. When you get to high elevation, the pressure of the outside are drops, so the relative pressure between outside and inside favours the ball. At higher altitude, less atmospheric pressure is exerted on the ball’s exterior, making relative pressure within greater, resulting in a firmer ball.
