Olin is like many college campuses as there is a love of billiards among students. However, in order to get the perfect shot one often tries to strike the sweet spot on the cue ball. For our final project in this class my partner and I sought to discover if the sweet spot does help will one's ability to achieve rolling without slipping, thus providing the most control over the cue ball. Our results suggest that time take to achieve rolling without slipping has noticeable difference based upon the height struck on the cue ball.
