Which among the following is / are features of the Crazy balls?
1. Higher elasticity
2. Higher resilience
3. Higher viscosity

Select the correct option from the codes given below:

Answer: [A] Only 1 & 2

Rubber is a common viscoelastic material which means it is both viscous and elastic. Further, Rubber is also characterized by another property called resilience. Resilience is the ability of a material to absorb energy when it is deformed elastically, and release that energy upon unloading. Higher the resilience, higher is the bounce in a rubber ball, which means higher elasticity and lesser viscosity. We note here that the butadiene rubber has higher resilience property, followed by natural rubber.
