transverse frontal transverse frontal sagittal sagittal Laws of IVIoU39on NEWTON39S LAWS OF MOTION Sir Isaac Newton Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica 1686 Laws of moh on Law of inertia or The First Law A body in motion tends to remain in motion at the same speed in a straight line unless acted upon by a force A body at rest tends to stay at rest unless acted upon by a force Inertia is the resistance of an object to motion it is directly proportional to its mass The more massive an object is the more it tends to maintain its current state of motion Iner a De nition resistance to action or change In human movement inertia refers to resistance to acceleration or deceleration Tendency for the current state of motion to be maintained regardless of whether the body segment is moving at a particular velocity or is motionless The reluctance to change status only force can change status muscles produce force to start stop accelerate decelerate amp change the direction of motion Iner a The greater an object s mass the greater its inertia the greater the mass the more force needed to overcome an object s inertia Examples Sprinter in starting blocks must apply considerable force to overcome his resting inertia Runner on an indoor track must apply considerable force to overcome moving inertia amp stop before hitting the wall Thrown or struck balls require force to stop them Iner a Because muscle force is required to change inertia in human motion it takes energy Any activity carried out at a steady pace in a consistent direction will conserve energy Any irregularly paced or directed activity will be very costly to energy reserves Ex dancing amp basketball are generally much more fatiguing than walking or skating Laws of IVIo u39on Law of acceleration or The Second Law A change in the acceleration of a body occurs in the same direction as the force that caused it The change in acceleration is directly proportional to the force causing it and inversely proportional to the mass of the body Acceleration rate of change in velocity msZ Mass amount of matter in a body kg The more force The more acceleration me Fma Laws of Motion Law of reaction or The Third Law For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction Ground Reaction Forces Action feet push down Reaction ground pushes up on feet Track has more vs Sand has less reaction forces The Third Law m Balance and Equilibrium Equilibrium State of zero acceleration There is no change in the speed or direction of the body Balance Ability to control equilibrium Stability The resistance to a change in the body s acceleration equilibrium COM vs COG Center of Mass COM The point at which all of the body s MASS is equally balanced and distributed NOT always a point within the bodyquot Center of Gravity COG The point at which all of the body s WEIGHT is equally balanced and distributed Vertical projection of COG onto the floor is an important factor in stability Factors in Equilibrium Stability and Balance A person has balance when the center of gravity projection falls within the base of support A person has balance in the direct proportion to the size of the base The larger the base of support the more balance A person has balance depending on the weight mass The greater the weight the more balance A person has balance depending on the weight of the center of gravity The lower the center of gravity the more balance Factors in Equilibrium Stability and Balance A person has balance depending on where the center of gravity is in relation to the base of support Balance is less if the center of gravity is near the edge of the base When anticipating an oncoming force stability may be improved by placing the center of gravity nearer the side of the base of support expected to receive the force OR By enlarging the size of the base of support in the direction of the anticipated force Balance equilibrium and stability are essential in all movements and are all affected by the constant force of gravity as well as by the inertia of the body Unit 1 Review Directional Terminology body regions Planes and Axes of Motion Joint lVIovement Terminology

Toeoff Forms of Motion Linear Motion Uniform motion of the system of interest aka translation All system parts moving in the same direction at the same speed Rectilinear motion along a straight line Curvilinear motion along a curved line Example in human movement Jumpmg Curvilinear motion Forms of Motion Angular Motion Rotation around a central imaginary line known as the axis of Rm rotation Example in human movement Figure skating Forms of Motion Angular motions can combine to create linear motions Of the body such as in walking Of an object such as a ball General lVIotion When linear motion translation and angular motion are combined the resulting movement is general movement Lever Arm Length Long levers produce more linear force and thus better performance in some sports Z1 is moving faster than S1 because it s moving a greater distance in the same amount of time 21 end of pitchers lever 51 end of catchers lever Distance runner longer lever than sprinter Lever Arms The Longer the lever the more effective it is in imparting velocity Pitcher puts greatest speed on the ball with a long lever Tennis player can achieve faster ball speed serving wa straight arm than a bent elbow longer lever Tennis vs racquetball But for quickness of movement a shorter lever arm is advantageous Catcher throwing to 2nOI Ball won t be moving as fast but motion will be complete in less time Al Kinetics Force applied Movement Forces on the body make us move muscles and gravity Musculoskeletal system may be thought of as a series of snmple machInes machines used to increase mechanical advantage Mechanical advantage Loadeffort or load divided by effort Ideally using a relatively small force or effort to move a much greater resrstance OR Used to move one point of an object a relatively small distance yet resulting in a relatively large amount of movement of another pornt of the same ObJECt Kinetics Force applied Movement Machines function in four ways Balance multiple forces enhance force in an attempt to reduce total force needed to overcome a resistance Enhance ROM amp Speed of movement so that resistance may be moved further or faster than applied force alter resulting direction of the applied force Kinetics Machines IVIusculoskeletel system arrangement provides for 3 types of machines for producing movement Levers most common Wheels axles Pulleys Levers De nition A rigid bar that turns about an axis of rotation or a fulcrum The leverbar rotates about the axis as a result of force being applied to it to cause its movement against a resistance or weight In the body the bones represent the bars the joints are the axes and the muscles contract to apply the force to move the weight First Class Levers Axis in the middle is located between the force and the resistance dea to produce balanced movements Can also produce speed and range of motion and force depending on location of axis Force A Resistance First Class Levers A If the force arm

whose tendons are inserted on the bone farther from the joint center should be able to lift heavier weights increase in FA Tradeoff involved with tendon insertion mechanical advantage gained is accompanied by a loss of maximum speed To produce a given joint rotational velocity a muscle inserted farther from the joint center must contract at a higher speed at which it is less capable of
