1. ### Coefficient of Restitution between two balls

Yes, this is exactly what I planned to do! I have worked out that the minimum initial velocity that is required for the pink ball to reach the pocket os 0.224m/s (the pocket is a distance of 0.1525 from the pink ball while acceleration is still -0.165m/s). However, my problem lies in the fact...
2. ### Mechanics Investigation

Thanks for this, sorry I never replied sooner. I ended up assuming that the ball wasn't rolling at all, just sliding on the table. This was on the advice of the tutor, I guess as bringing angular momentum and rolling friction into things would have gotten very complicated. The reason I used a...
3. ### Coefficient of Restitution between two balls

Hi All, I conducted some experiments on snooker balls and am trying to find the coefficient of restitution between the balls. For the sake of the experiment, I have stated that the balls are sliding rather than rolling, and from an earlier experiment, I have discovered that there is a...
4. ### Mechanics Investigation

Hi Guys, Ok, I am taking on a mechanics investigation based around a snooker/pool/billiards style shot. I plan to model the ideal shot to get out of a snooker and pot a ball. In order to do this I plan to find the coefficient of friction between the table and the ball and the coefficient of...
