flip flopFlip-Flop - 256 combinations

Each flip-flop gate alternately sends the ball to the left or right.

After 256 drops (2 to the power 8 -the number of gates on the last row), the sim will have returned to its initial position, and the ball will drop into the cup.

The number of times each gate is passed on each line follows the laws of 'Pascals Triangle'.

The counters show the distribution curve for each path, and the total number of drops in the upper corner.
