"The sum of joint forces that the body must absorb when slowing down is equal in magnitude and oppositely directed to the external forces tat slow the body down" is an interpretation of...
action - reaction principle
Which of the following external forces slow the body down when it contacts the ground after a jump?
two ground reaction forces (one vertical and one horizontal)
Based on the "Linear Impulse - Momentum Principle" which of the following describes "a change in factor" that would decrease the vertical ground reaction force when landing after a jump?
a decrease in the mass (m) of the body
a decrease in the linear speed (s) of landing
an increase in the application time (t) of the vertical ground reaction force
Thinking Question: A soft foam pit is used for landing after a high jump in track and field. According go the linear impulse-momentum relationship, the foam put reduces the impact force by...
