Causes of Motion Linear Translation F = m*a What happens when you move the point of force application?

Causes of Motion M = F * d  MOMENT (N*m): cause of angular rotation Force (N) applied a perpendicular distance (m) from the axis of rotation. dddd M F

Axis of Rotation: Center of Mass Center of Mass (CM, CoG, TBCM) The balance point of an object Object of uniform density; CM is located at the Geometric Center

Axis of Rotation: Center of Mass Center of Mass (CM, CoG, TBCM) The balance point of an object Object of non-uniform density; CM is dependent upon mass distribution & segment orientation / shape.

Moments are taken about the total body center of mass. Axis of Rotation: TBCM CM location is dependent upon mass distribution & segment orientation CM

Angular Impulse taken about an object’s CM = the object’s change in angular momentum Angular Momentum - the quantity of angular motion  M cm = I cm   M cm = I cm  /  t  M cm  t = I cm  where I cm = moment of inertia, resistance to rotation about the CM Note: The total angular momentum about the TBCM remains constant. An athlete can control their rate of rotation (angular velocity) by adjusting the radius of gyration, distribution (distance) of segments relative to TBCM.
