Description:

This applet demonstrates how to use the law of reflection (for optics) in playing pool. A ball bouncing off the back of a pool table behaves like a light ray reflecting off a mirror. There are two colored balls; red and blue. The user can set up an initial velocity for the red ball and let the red ball knock the blue one into one of the six bags. The user can set the initial velocity. The ball starts to move when you release the mouse button.
