Hello I am thinking of investigating a problem for a project by writing a computer program to solve wether or not it is possible to... Hit the white ball for a break on a pool table with the correct velocity and angle to get every single one of your balls in, one by one (striking each ball with the white ball by rebounding it off the sides etc. - not simply from the break) then the pot the black in one shot. Would this be actually possible to do if there was no limit to how hard you can hit the white ball ? I'm guessing if it is, then the velocity would have to be much higher than physically possible from a human... P.S I'm going to be taking into account friction of the table and non-elastic collisions of the balls. Thanks for any help Greg !
