Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm just trying to find out if there is a calculation to that relates deviation from a straight line to the forward velocity and the rotation of a circular object.

Essentially i have a small project that i get to prepare and work on and was thinking of trying to find the optimal bowling speed for a cricket spin bowler to get maxium drift.

I was planning on doing a small amount of expermination and calculation to verify results.

Any help or better ideas would be much appreciated
