  • Incline Lab Report Essay

    697 Words  | 3 Pages

    Theory: The principle we tested in this lab was Newton’s second law that states the net force on an object is equal to the mass of the object times its acceleration (F ⃗=ma ⃗). The formulas we used were: Δx=V_0x t+(a_x t)/2, we assumed the initial velocity V_0x=0 because it is extremely small, then we solved for a_x to get a_x=2Δx/t^2. a=gsin(θ). Experiment: The materials used in this lab were an air track, an air blower, a glider, computer, and wooden blocks. For table 1, my group and I started

    Introduction: The Gait cycle “ The Gait cycle starts when one foot makes contact with the ground and ends when that same foot contacts the ground again”. (, 2009) An entire gait cycle is made up of two steps. The Gait cycle can be divided into two phases that occur in cycles, the Stance phase and the Swing phase. As seen in figure 1 the stance phase accounts for 60% of the gait cycle, while the swing phase accounts for the other 40% of the cycle. Gait analysis is an essential

  • Rectilinear Velocity In Sports

    1077 Words  | 5 Pages

    such as track and tennis, velocity is at the forefront of success: the greater the velocity, the greater the chance at winning. Linear velocity is calculated by dividing the distance between two positions of an object by the amount of time elapsed between those subsequent points (Lawler 2018). Keep in mind, however, that there is curvilinear velocity and rectilinear velocity. Both refer to shape of the path that an object takes. For instance, rectilinear velocity, which this laboratory session
