Another random selection puzzle
Another lottery-like mathematical challenge... We have an experiment with a professor and student. The professor has a container that has a very large number of balls, both red and blue in color, with hundreds or more of each. The balls within each color are identical and indistinguishable. In front of him he has two empty jars. Let's call them Jar 1 and Jar 2. The experiment will be done out of sight of the student, who will only see the final result, and will then be presented with a quest

Nature of Randomness in Mechanical Systems
Hey Wavepack, I think you got one fundamental point about the possible prediction of lottery outcomes. And how do you assume to know about the starting grazing collisions? It'll be all a matter of knowing that initial state.
