Introduction to Biomechanics
At the end of my presentation, the class will be able to:
i. And list what mechanics concepts explains this
The overall goal of the presentation is to help the class understand a bit about how Physics can explain and predict a lot about sports and athletes.
Materials for Demonstration
(Good to mention: that it is simplified model of throwing arm – many more muscles/tendons in real arm)
(Good to mention: that scientific examinations often do not come out as expected, so results are not confusing)
Stylized model of throwing arm:
Throwing Arm built by UBC Physics workshop:
You should find a noticeable (measurable) difference in between settings: Setting 3 (as shown above) produces the fastest throw, while Setting 1 produces the slowest.
