Snookered! Part II (Posted on 2007-02-08) Difficulty: 3 of 5
In “Snookered” there was a realistic value for friction of the rolling cue ball, but the bounce off the rail of the billiards table was “perfect”. A more realistic value for the “coefficient of restitution” of such a bounce is 0.7 (perfect = 1.0). For that case, how much harder would you need to hit the cue ball (compared to Part I) in order to again just make the shot? And where would you place the ball this time?
