Playing Ball in a Space Station
Simoson, Andrew J.
College Mathematics Journal, v37 n5 p334-343 Nov 2006
How does artificial gravity affect the path of a thrown ball? This paper contrasts ball trajectories on the Little Prince's asteroid planet B-612 and Arthur C. Clarke's rotating-drum spacecraft of 2001, and demonstrates curve balls with multiple loops in the latter environment.
