Depends on how hard you hit the cue ball.

It is only limited by the maximum a human can stroke the cue ball with a cue stick. Pros say optimum break speed is around 17 miles per hour cue ball speed. Max is much faster than that.

If an action force is a cue ball hitting a billiard ball then what is the reaction force?

The reaction force is the object ball moving away after being struck. The cue ball may or may not come away with any energy, but it usually retains a bit. There is a "science" to where to strike the cue ball with the cue to achieve "position" in the game. You already know the zillion different things that a good player can do (must do!) with the cue ball to win a rack, though. The basic answer is that the kinetic energy of the cue ball will be transferred to the object ball in an largely inelastic collision. The object ball will then carry the energy away after the momentum of the cue ball is passed on to it. This is the case for a "straight shot" on the table with no English on the cue ball.

How do you make a jump shot in billiards?

The cue stick is elevated to at least 45 degrees and the cue is quickly stroked through the cue ball pushing the cue ball into the table slate, which makes it then rebound into the air. People not knowing how to perform a jump shot attempt to "scoop" the cue ball, using a cue stick not elevated enough and striking below the center of the cue ball. In tournament play and conventional pool rules, this "scoop" is an illegal shot, and will give the table over to the opponent.

What is better an open bridge or closed bridge?

A closed bridge will give you more control on normal shots. With an open bridge, sometimes the cue stick will bounce up after hitting the cue ball, particularly if you're applying spin, making the hit less accurate. However, there are times when you need to use an open bridge, such as if you need to elevate your cue stick over a blocking ball to get to the cue ball or if the cue ball is on the rail.

In the game of pool what colour is the cue ball?

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.

The term cue is related to which game?

Why is the third law that sometimes is called the law of action and reaction?

Newton's third law of motion states that whenever a force is applied on an object, an equal and opposite force is applied by the object.For example:You take two billiards balls on a pool table; say the cue ball and the 8.When the cue ball is shot into the 8 ball, it transfers its energy to the 8 ball. The 8 ball will roll in the same direction as the cue ball.The 8 ball also transfers its energy to the cue ball. The cue ball, after hitting the 8 ball, will be stopped or significantly slowed.Basically what happened was the cue ball's action was ended by the 8 ball's reaction. The reaction and action occur simultaneously.

What will happen when a pool stick hits the white pool ball which hits another pool ball?

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.

Why is it that when a cue ball is sunk in billiards it returns when the other balls do not?

The cue ball can be a different weight or size from the others. If this is the case, the cue ball will be difficult to control for the way it acts after hitting object balls. Some tables use a laser and sensor to "read" the ball coming down the chute, and will force the cue ball to take a different route. I believe some others use a magnetic cue ball, or at least there may be a piece of metal in the cue ball and a magnet in the ball return system to somehow differentiate them.

How does English work in billards?

English or Sidespin is an advanced technique in billiards. Basically, the cue ball does not travel the same path that your cue stick is aiming.

How do you legally jump the cue ball?

There are two kinds of cue ball jumps, one immediately after the cue strikes the cue ball and one where the cue ball jumps after contact with another object. A legal stroke to jump a cue ball immediately must strike the cue ball above center - this drives the cue ball into the table surface from which it rebounds. Strking the cue ball below center to lift the ball intentionally is called a scoop shot and is a foul. A cue ball can be made to jump after hitting a rail by using extreme draw or follow.
