Let's say, hypothetically, that a basketball is twice the size of a volleyball. And, a volleyball is three times the size of a baseball. So, if a basketball has 12 pounds of air pressure, how much air pressure will a baseball have?


A baseball doesn't need any air pressure. It has cork and rubber in the middle.

Oh ace are you concerned with the pressure in a baseball? I'm not... I just want to know if it will move when I throw it.

It won't. I suck at throwing

The answer is one atmosphere (1 atm), to balance out the pressure from the outside.

Extreme, if there is a balance between the outside and the inside then there is no pressure.
