Oz Trampolines Trampoline Springs

What makes a trampoline bouncy?

What makes a trampoline bouncy? It’s the springs that give a trampoline its bounce. The mat simply connects all the springs together and gives a soft surface to play on.
The springs store your kinetic energy as potential energy by stretching, just like a rubber band. The further you stretch a spring the harder it is. Without the springs it would just be a mat without bounce.

Trampolines as an energy converter

Fundamentally a trampoline is an energy converter. When you jump your muscles are converting your stored potential energy into kinetic energy.  As you land the trampoline gets tighter and the springs stretch, safely converting your kinetic energy (jump) into potential energy ready for use.
Once the trampoline has converted and stored all of your kinetic energy it gives it back to you by converting the potential energy from the springs back into kinetic energy and springing you up into the air.
