Storyboard Text

  • Sure, I've never played before. Wow that would be a fun job!
  • Do you want to know the physics of pool? People can get paid for being good at pool, it's their job!
  • Okay I'll try it.
  • You want to hit the ball in the center, this way there is no friction and the most energy is transferred.
  • The more force you hit the ball with, the greater the acceleration.
  • How do you hit the ball in the pocket correctly?
  • Using Newton's first law, an object in motion remain and and object at rest will remain, unless an unbalanced force crosses its path.
  • When you hit this ball straight on, all of the energy is transferred and the other ball goes forward into the pocket.
  • Because of law of conservation of energy, If you hit it on the angle, the white ball will move, it still has energy.
  • Okay, I'll hit it straight on.
  • If you hit the cue ball straight on, energy will be transferred from the stick to the cue ball, cue ball to red ball, red ball to blue ball.
  • Wow! Physics is cool. I wonder what pool will be in the future?
  • I think the future of pool will have a different shape of the table, maybe round and the same rules apply.
  • Wow that would be really fun to play!
