Biomechanics - Limb Rotational Dynamics and Torque


These materials, under development, focus on rotational dynamics of human limbs and the associated forces exerting torques on the limb. Angular kinematics graph predictions and graph interpretation of limbs in motion are included. From this data and associated pictures from video, student learn to draw torque diagrams and calculate muscles force at interesting moments in the motion. As this these materials are still in development, different versions are included. Most are designed for easy digital manipulation with click and drag features. These materials are NOT currently in order of use, although they will be later.

ABOUT THE LIVING PHYSICS PORTAL

The Living Physics Portal is an online environment for physics faculty to share and discuss free curricular resources for teaching introductory physics for life sciences (IPLS). The objective of the Portal is to improve the education of the next generation of medical professionals and biologists by making physics classes more relevant for life sciences students.
