Which Bounces Higher a Steel Ball or a Rubber Ball?

SURPRISE! It’s a steel ball! When a steel ball hits a hard surface, like the ground, it dents just like a rubber ball. But the steel ball snaps back into shape much faster than a rubber ball.

It is the snapping back into shape that makes any ball bounce, so since the steel ball snaps back into shape faster than a rubber one, it bounces higher.
