Biomechanics

The human body performs a large range of movements every day. Elite sports people perform even more complex movements in the most efficient ways possible with the input from sports scientists known as biomechanists. Biomechanics is the study of how the physical laws of mechanics apply to human movement. This programme clearly investigates the basic concepts of movement and applies these to human performance. The programme provides strong links with the associated areas of: velocity, force, inertia, moment of inertia, acceleration, momentum; conservation of momentum; summation of momentum, impulse, elasticity, accuracy and flattening the arc, friction, levers, types of motion, torque, flight trajectory, spin and balance and stability.
