Billiards and Mathematics (Eric Sun)

At first glance, the game billiards doesn’t have any
resemblance to mathematics. Many would think that the diamonds around the table
are there for no reason and that it would require luck. However, throughout the
course of the video, I realise that is has little to do with luck. The lines
around the table are there for a reason and striking the ball at different
angles changes how the Q ball acts, like how striking the Q ball low so it will
spin backwards. I had always thought that it was based on luck and years of
practise But after watching the video, I now know that it has little to do with
luck and more to do with how you strike the ball and how the diamonds are there
for a reason and not there for aesthetic purposes.
