This activity is used to show students how physics can be used in a life situation to better themselves at a game of billiards. This project shows how velocity, angles, action and reaction, elasticity, and the rules of pool interact together in a fun environment. The students would be able to change characteristics of this model to see how changing different parameters will change the outcome of the pool shot.
