## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello Everyone,

I'm new to your forum and was hoping to get some answers concerning

physics being applied to a roulette wheel. I'm a member of a roulette forum

where there is presently a member that states he can predict 99% of the time

where the ball will land within a +/- 18 number sector on the wheel. He states

he clocks the time it takes for the ball to make 1 revolution and the rotor speed

of the wheel and can determine where the ball will strike the wheel. He states

based on these visual measurements he can apply the scatter affect of the ball

to accurately 99% of the time predict which half of the wheel the ball will land.

Is this possible using physics and to the degree he states? I'm aware that if the

same amount of force was used to spin the ball everytime it would be possible

to some degree to know when the ball will start to fall, but is it possible to figure

how far the ball will scatter based on the amount of force used to spin the ball?

I would appreciate any thoughts on this matter, I just can't believe this is possible

using visual observations.
