Question:
I'm doing a research project for my Physics class. I need to find a way to improve the game of billiards using Physics. I would really appreciate it if you could refer me to some good books or websites that have the information I'm looking for.



Replies:
Mechanical Universe has a section on Conservation of Energy and Momentum. There is a section in that video that discusses precisely your question.
