Biomechanics

Acceleration

QuestionAnswer
Acceleration rate of change of velocity
Acceleration equation Vfinal - Vinital / ΔT = ΔV / ΔT
increasing velocity - positive acceleration positive direction
decreasing velocity - negative acceleration positive direction
increasing velocity - negative acceleration negative direction
decreasing velocity - positive acceleration negative direction
Positive net force = positive acceleration
At peak of the a jump, V=0. when V=0 and CG = 0. What is your acceleration? Negative acceleration because you have body weight.
Negative net force = negative acceleration
Force the push or Pull on the body measured in Newtons (N)
Law #1 Law of inertia
Law #2 Law of acceleration
Law #3 Law of action/reaction
Law of inertia a body will continue in its state of rest or motion unless a net force acts on it
Law of acceleration if net force acting on a body is not zero, the body will experience acceleration proportional to the force applied ( ∑F = m X a )
Law of action/reaction for every action, there is an equal & opposite reaction
if GRFv = W ∑F = 0 ( no net force) & Acg =0
if GRF v > W ∑F > 0 (net force upwards) & Acg > 0 (positive)
if GRFv < W ∑F < 0 (net force downward) & Acg < 0 (negative)
∑F = 0 & Acg =0 -CG motionless (stationary) -CG moving with a constant velocity
∑F = 0 > & Acg =0 -speed of CG is INCREASING as it moves UPWARDS (+ direction) -speed of CG is DECREASING as it moves DOWNWARD (-direction)
∑F = 0 < & Acg =0 -speed of CG is DECREASING as it moves UPWARDS (+ direction) -speed of CG is INCREASING as it moves DOWNWARDS (- direction)

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
