This is a sequence of
images of a racquetball colliding with a wall on the right.
The images were taken 0.00025 seconds apart. The shapes
assumed by the racquetball are similar to some of those seen in

in both cases, a tension force influences the shape of the ball. For
liquids, the force is surface tension while for the racquetball, the
force is the elasticity of the ball. For a larger version of
