Title: Basketball vs. Tennis ball; which rolls the fastest?

Aim: To find out which ball rolls the fastest Hypothesis: We think the basketball will roll the fastest because it is heavier & bigger and will have more momentum. The tennis ball is smaller & it would lose more energy as it has to roll more.
Tennis ball

Basketball

Conclusion: Our hypothesis was incorrect as the basketball was slower. The basketball went at a constant speed whereas the tennis ball accelerated then decelerated at about half way.
