The size of both are regulated in the Rules of Golf by the USGA and R&A. The golf ball has a floor minimum diameter of 1.68 inches, but it doesn’t have a maximum. Golf balls are made to that spec almost universally. The golf ball also cannot weigh less than 1.62 ounces.
The average golf ball has a width of 1.692 inches, which is 43mm or 4.3cm. The width of the ball with a 1.68-inch diameter is the minimum acceptable size for the golf ball.
A golf ball, to be legal, has to be at least 1.68 inches in diameter. That means that its circumference — the length of “one more roll” — is at least 3.14 times 1.68, or 5.28 inches . And that length is eerily similar to one that was in the news earlier this month.
Out of these sports, the lightest is the table tennis or ping-pong ball, the heaviest is a tie between bowling and shot put , though in bowling there is range of weights used with 16 pounds the maximum allowable weight.

Determine the diameter from the circumference by dividing the circumference by the value of pi, which is 3.141592. Pi is the ratio between the circumference and the diameter and when it is divided into the circumference the result is the diameter .
The smallest? A squash ball is just a little smaller than the golf ball . At the other end of the scale, the largest is the basketball.
While most modern 18-hole golf courses occupy as much as 60 hectares ( 150 acres ) of land, the average course has 30 hectares ( 74 acres ) of maintained turf.
In the 1930s, Gene Sarazen spoke in favor a few times of going to an 8- inch hole . Jack Nicklaus has, a few times, cut 8- inch holes at his Muirfield Village Golf Club, for special events. Meantime, remember: the golf hole size is 4.25 inches because that’s the size the R&A decided, in 1891, to standardize.
The range of acceptable values of golf ball = 42.668 mm- 42.672 mm. Diameter : It is the longest chord of circle which divides the circle into two equal halves .
When objects are placed in water, some will sink to the bottom and some will float or be suspended in water. Generally, heavier objects, such as rocks and golf balls , will sink to the bottom because they are heavier than the water that is trying to hold them up.
One of the ball is heavier than rest of the 7 balls , which all are of equal weight . You have to find out the heavier ball by using two arm balance scale a minimum number of times.
When the cue ball is sunk, it doesn’t go to the same depository. A table can tell the difference in one of two ways: Either the cue ball is slightly larger—usually about 1/8-inch bigger in diameter than the standard 2.25-inch billiard ball —or it’s housing a magnetized center.
Lacrosse balls are harder than baseballs. The compact rubber utilized to construct lacrosse balls make them hard to the touch. The cowhide that acts as the superficial foundation of baseballs also feels hard to the touch, but is still softer than that of lacrosse balls .
