Description

There are 13 weeks of lectures, with some revision lecture. Usually, it is one or two lectures per week. I have written notes for all lectures, except revision lectures.

Lecture 1 – What is Biomechanics? Measurement and measurement error
Lecture 2 - Scalars, vectors + vector addition, 2D and 3D coordinates,
Trigonometry
Lecture 3 - Linear Motion - Position, velocity, acceleration
Lecture 4 - Linear Motion - Uniform acceleration, Projectile motion
Lecture 5 - Linear Kinetics - Force and Newton's Laws
Lecture 6 - Linear Kinetics - Force and Newton's Laws continued
Lecture 7 - Linear Kinetics: Impulse/Momentum, Collisions
Lecture 8 – Energy: Work and Power
Lecture 9 – Energy: Potential, Kinetic, Elastic Energy
Lecture 10 – Angular kinetics - torque, moment arms
Lecture 11 – Angular kinetics - estimating muscle loads
Lecture 12 – Angular motion: angles, angular displacement, velocity
and acceleration, radial and tangential acceleration, effects of radius
on linear velocity
Lecture 13 – Measuring angular motion, proximal-distal sequencing of
movement
Lecture 14 – Centre of mass/Base of support, Newton's laws in
angular motion, Moment of inertia and torque
Lecture 15 – Angular momentum and impulse, body posture, and
angular velocity
Lecture 16 – Qualitative and Quantitative Biomechanical Analysis
Lecture 17 – Fluid dynamics: buoyancy, lift, drag, spin
