BLOSSOMS - "The Physics of Pool" by Joseph Formaggio

The objective of this lesson is to illustrate how a common everyday experience (such as playing pool) can often provide a learning moment. In the example chosen, we use the game of pool to help explain some key concepts of physics - such as the conservation of linear momentum, torque and friction.
