Movement Test

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Biomechanics Introduction Biomechanics is the movement of the body. It is the way that we analyse the movement pattern in the body and it allows us to measure the speed and distance travels in the experiments. In my First test I will be assessing the Distance travelled, Speed in which the action took place and Velocity. Distance is as it says distance between 1 point and another. Speed is what I'm measuring to calculate the velocity and the angle of movement. Velocity will be done similar to speed but shared by time of the action. In the Second test I will be assessing the Distance travelled, Speed in which the action took place and Velocity. It's basically the same barring the fact that this is the throw-in in football where the first is the action of a kick. I will also be looking at the different type of levers that can be use in different sporting activities.

I hope that this test will show me that there less effort needed the further away the weight is from the pivot point. Task 3 I have preformed tests on 2 subjects both doing different sporting actions. The first is a football kick from standing. In this test analysing the movement and the velocity has shown my subjects 1 angle of acceleration In this test I have 7 pages of calculation of the movement that subject 1 did in his kicking action. All the frames are 0.12 seconds. And on the sheet 133mm distance equals 1m real size (133mm = 1m). The subject's leg doesn't move on the first frame it stays in the same position no angle of movement. In my first frame the velocity is 10.59ms-1 and the angle of movement is 0?s. There's no change in angle movement until frames 3+4 when the angle changes to 0.01?s. Changes again in the next frames 5+6 333.33?s it caries on changing and increasing till frames 8+9 when it becomes the recovery stage when the angle becomes -166.67?s as it is coming back to the starting place. And in the final frame it becomes -250?s as it is coming back the starting point. In my calculation my aim was to use trigonometry to calculate the distance of A when B and C are squared and then added and subtracted to equal the length of A. ...read more.

Conclusion

Task 4 Abstract This assignment is on my testing of 2 subjects on 2 different sporting actions. I look at angle of acceleration, velocity and length of A. In my Task 1 I have spoken about 3 different sporting actions I have chosen them all from rugby. One is a drop kick anther is pass and the final one is a tackle. I got all of these of the BBC web site. I analyse all of their movements in these action which could contribute to a good action. Task 2 is about the lever system and how it is in the body and how it effects how everything works in the sporting world. Task 3 is all about the 2 tests that I carried out one a football kick and the other is a football throw-in. I analyse their acceleration and velocity to see how their ability fairs. At the end my report on what I have discovered by doing my test and doing this assignment. Report to the director of WIS. This report is regarding my testing of 2 subjects and seeing their ability level and their techniques. Subject 1 is a 17 year old and has been playing football for about 14 years. Subject 2 is 18 and has also been playing about 14 years. Subject 1 did the football kick. My calculations show how his velocity and angle of acceleration is his kicking action. Subject 2 did the football throw-in. On my calculation for this section they are like a yo-yo up and down not able to estimate the ultimate velocity or acceleration.
