What’s the ball bouncing back up called?
Like what do you call the height that it bounces back up?
I used to be calling it the reverb height, but reverb isn’t the right word?

If you want to get fancy, "apogee". :-)

I believe the ball is "rebounding" of the floor. Rebound is the word.

The principle works under the alternate "ELASTICITY", AND is a more general analysis (math analysis)

Ricochet. This is an alternate word.

Don't get too hung up on words. Just make sure that the terms are unambiguous.
"The height the ball reaches after the first bounce" is absolutely unambiguous.
"The rebound height after the first bounce" is also unambiguous.
"The rebound" is NOT unambiguous. It does not state that it was after only one bounce and it does not make it clear that it is HEIGHT that is important. It might be referring to velocity, energy, momentum or something else.

I think you're thinking of the word "rebound"

It doesn't have a name. they haven't let them call it the backbounce, bounceup, nor the bounceback yet.
