  • Biomechanics
    • motions
      • linear motion
        • an object travelling in a straight or curved line at the same distance, time and speed.
        • examples of this: curved linear motion- shot put  straight linear motion rolling a ball in a straight line
      • angular motion
        • an object that spins around its axis of rotaion
        • examples of angular motion- a basketball spinning on your finger.
      • General motion
        • This is a combination of angular and linear motion
        • example of general motion is a bike race
    • Newton's laws
      • Newton's 1st law is the law of inerta
        • This is where the object will remain is state of complete rest or uniform velocity until acted upon by an external force
      • Newton's 2nd law is the law of acceleration
        • this is were the impact of the external forces effects the about of momentum an object has
      • Newton's 3rd law
        • this law is that for every action there is an equal of opposite reaction
