Hello all,
I'm new here, I've been playing pool for over a year now on a Kasson table that I own and I have to do a term paper for an English class so I decided, why not do it about pool? I am posting to see if anyone here knows any good sites having to do with the geometry concepts that are used in the game, or with any of the physics of the game. If anyone has any links, I'd be much obliged. Thank you all and this is a very nice site and forum.

Try this one. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to see it. It will probably fry your brain.

You might check this out:

http://www.engr.colostate.edu/~dga/pool/index.html .

Suggest you take a look at the technical proof (TP) analyses. The clips and links might be of interest also.

Hi. Welcome to the CCB! One of our regular posters did a very nice job of describing and defining some of the physics of throw, squirt and deflection on his site.

Here is the link:
