• Most liquids and solids are very incompressible.
• Rubber is compressible; when an object or a character’s volume changes it looks rubbery.
• Elasticity does not imply compressibility.
• Elastic objects bouncing on a hard surface retain much of their energy after the impact with each bounce lower by the same percentage.
• The vertical spacings in the parabolic path of action for each bounce are the same.
• The parabolic arc of the motion curve for each bounce is the same shape.
