**Amateur Physics for the Amateur Pool Player**

by Ron Shepard

**Publisher**: Argonne National Laboratory 1997**Number of pages**: 109

**Description**:

These notes are intended for the pool player who enjoys playing the game, and who enjoys understanding how things work using the language of physics. There is probably very little pool playing technique discussed in this manuscript that will be new to the experienced pool player, and likewise, there is little physics that will be new to the
experienced physicist. However, there will be hopefully new pool technique for the interested physicist and new physics for the interested pool player. The tone of the presentation is not directed necessarily toward either the pool student or the physics student, but rather toward the amateur who enjoys both.
