I don’t do any actual math. But I visualize the cueball path after contact with an object ball as the addition of two vectors. The first vector is the tangent line with a magnitude proportional to how hard I hit the shot. The second vector is the original cueball path with a magnitude relative to the amount of action on the cueball. My mind just sees both vectors and merges them into the predicted path. I see a lot of talk about things like the peace sign for predicting some rolling cueball trajectories. I was just wondering if others went off pure feel /familiarity or if they similarly had a mathematical visualization in mind.
