In 8-ball pool, there are 14 object balls, the 8-ball and the cue ball, totalling 16 balls.In 9-ball pool, there are 9 object balls and the cue ball, totalling 10 balls.In Snooker, there are 21 object balls, and the cue ball, totalling 22 balls.
The Cue Ball is less weight than the Colored Balls.
Different numbers for different games. 8-Ball has 15 numbered balls and one cue ball. 9-Ball has 9 balls and one cue ball.
The cue stick is used to strike the balls. The cue ball used by the players to hit the other balls is the white ball. It is the one they hit with the cue stick.
When playing pool, the cue is the white ball. It is the ball which is hit by the cue stick and used to knock the colored balls into their respective pockets.
The cue ball is white.The cue ball in pool is white.
So you can tell which is the cue ball
either 10 or 16. In the US, there are 2 "standard" pool games, 8 Ball and 9 Ball. 9 ball uses the first 9 balls plus a cue ball. 8 Ball uses 15 numbered balls plus the cue ball.
you have to use a pool stick and 10 or 16 balls counting the cue ball
16 if you count the cue ball
Sometimes. In coin operated pool tables the cue ball must be "different" in order for it to be returned to play and not captured as the numbered balls are. The original method for this was making a slightly larger cue ball. Today, most coin operated tables use a cue ball with a metal center that is the same size as all other balls on the table. The magnet is used to return the cue ball to the player.
In 8 ball pool there are 16 balls on the table, a cue ball, 8 ball, 7 solids and 7 stripes although they could be red and yellow etc. In 9 ball there are 10 balls on the table, cue ball, 1-7 solid, 8 ball and striped 9 ball.
In 9 ball - 9 In 8 ball - 15
8 ball pool, 7 solid, 7 stripes the 8ball and the cue ball. So 16.
White ADD: Again a basic answer that is technically incorrect. The cue ball just needs to be identifiable from the other balls. The cue ball is the ball that you strike with your cue stick. In many games the cue ball will change during the game. Also, with the advent of "larger" cue balls in coin operated tables at pubs, many players will use one of the like sized and weighted balls from the playing set rather than the white cue ball.
There are 8 coloured balls in a standard game of pool (the 1 through 7 and the 8 ball), and there are 7 striped balls. That sums to 15 balls.
No. In pocket billiards, all pool balls are of the same weight except those made for use on a coin operated table. Pool balls are required to weigh 5.5 to 6 ounces. Coin operated tables need the cue ball to be different so that it is not captured the way the numbered balls are when they are pocketed. Older tables used an oversize cue ball while newer tables use a magnetic cue ball. Both of these weigh more and react differently than a conventional cue ball made for regular table play.
All pool games use a cue ball, plus either 7 (7 Ball), 9 (9 Ball), 15 (8 Ball, Straight Pool), or 21 (Baseball) balls depending upon the game.
A cue ball plus 7, 9, 15, or 21 balls depending upoin the game.
16 balls in pool including the cue ball
There is no difference between the cue ball and billiard ball except that the cue ball is white and without significant markings.
If the pool stick, or cue, hits the cue ball, the white ball, with any part other than the tip, it is a foul. If the tip strikes the cue ball, it is a shot. After that, the outcome depends on the game, what balls was struck, whether it was a break shot or in-game shot, the proper object ball, and where the bal struck ends up.
