Homework Help: The collision of billiard balls.

  1. Feb 26, 2010 #1
    Hi guys, first time in this forum.
    seems legit.

    I'm in year 12, i have to find or make a EPI (prac) to do with one of these topics.
    1. Co-efficient of friction between different surfaces.
    2. Strength of nylon/cotton/steel/tin string.
    3. Projectile motion.
    4. Bending of a beam.
    5. The coefficient of restitution of a squash ball.
    6. The collision of billiard balls.
    7. Centripetal force, acceleration due to gravity/or along inclined.

    Im going more towards No. 6, the collision of billiard balls but i cant find anything online.
    if anyone could help me find/make a prac it will be very helpful. (it can be really simple)
    ill be doing my best to find one for now, thanks.
