EXSS 3020 - Biomechanics of Sport


3 cr. 3 hr. This course may be offered less than once every two years.

This course involves the study of the mechanical aspects that underlie human motion. Mechanical considerations include describing motion in terms of levers, linear and angular acceleration, velocity, and projectiles, and the determination of motion by studying force, inertia, mass, momentum, impulse, drag, lift, buoyancy, center of gravity and stability. Application of anatomical and mechanical principles is related to the improvement of performance in selected sports. EXSS majors only.

Co-requisite or Prerequisite: EXSS 2050 .
