Kinematics of human motion

To study bases of mechanics, we recommend you to choose one of the following web sites.
If you need to explain some mechanical variable, you can use this dictionary.

Kinematics use following terms: displacement, velocity, acceleration, time.

 

 Basic terms, the example of relation between s, v, t see here. If you can prove your own reaction time, click here

 

Kinematics in One Dimension:

1D linear average velocity, 1D linear instantaneous velocity, 1D linear average or  instantaneous acceleration

Uniformly accelerated motion in 1D - applet (example) from Alfredo Louro, University of Calgary

Motion of constant acceleration - see applet from Walter Fendt

free fall - applet (example) from Alfredo Louro, University of Calgary

 Projectile Motion ( transversal throw ) -see applet from Walter Fendt    -       

Kinematics in  Two and Three Dimensions:

2D or 3D linear average velocity or instantaneous velocity, 2D or 3D linear average or  instantaneous acceleration

 

Movement Around a Curve - acceleration, angular velocity

Uniform circular motion - applet (example) from Alfredo Louro, University of Calgary

Carousel,  circular motion  see applet freom Walter Fendt
