Hello Mr. Hwang,
My name is Will Kuduk. I live in the state of Minnesota in the USA. I am 17 and a junior at Mounds View High School. I came across your website on the physics of billiards while researching for a imformative paper I have to write for school on the game of pool. It would be greatly appreciated if you could answer a few questions I have for you (Please excuse my lack of knowledge in Physics for I won't have that course in school until next year). If you have the time here are the questions. Please send your response back to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
1. How long have you been a physics professor? How long have you or did you study the relationship between the game of billiards and physics?
2. Do you enjoy and/or play billiards? If so, has learning abou t physics raised your level of play?
3. What scientific theory or law related to physics is most useful for playing pool?
4. Could you define that theory or law?
5. I understand your law of reflection idea and the 2d collision, but is there a way for physics to explain the use of physics when it comes to putting english (aka side or spin) on the ball?
6. Could you explain exactly what an elastic and inelastic collision are. How would these collisions be changed if there was spin on the ball?
7. Is there anything else that you think I should know about the physics of pool that I haven't already inquired about?
Thank you very much. That is all. Your time is greatly appreciated.
