The flashcards below were created by user bbiggs on FreezingBlue Flashcards. What would you like to do?


  1. ______ is the description of angular motion.
    Angular Kinematics
  2. The intersection of two lines, two planes, or a line and a plane.
    Angle
  3. Orientation of a line with another.
    Types: Absolute and Relative
    Angular Position
  4. One line is fixed relative to the earth.
    Reference point is FIXED.
    Absolute Angular Position
  5. Both lines capable of moving.
    Relative Angular Position
  6. The angle formed between initial and final position of the rotating line.
    Angular Displacement
  7. Use right-hand thumb rule to clarify direction of angular motion (clockwise/counterclockwise).
    Negative - ________
    Positive - ________
    • Counterclockwise
    • Clockwise
  8. Rate of change of angular displacement.
    Angular Velocity
  9. Rate of change in angular velocity.
    Angular Acceleration
  10. ______ occurs when:
    • Something spins faster and faster
    • Slower and slower
    • When the spinning object's axis of spin changes direction
    Angular Acceleration
  11. • The component of linear acceleration tangent to the circular path of a point on a rotating object.
    • Is equal angular acceleration of the object times the radius.
    Tangential Acceleration
  12. • Linear acceleration directed toward the axis of rotation
    • Directly proportional to the square of the tangential linear velocity and the square angular velocity
    • If angular velocity is constant, centripetal acceleration is directly proportional to the radius of rotation
    • If tangential linear velocity is constant, centripetal acceleration is inversely proportional to the radius of rotation
    Centripetal Acceleration
  13. _______ =
    tangential velocity2 / radius
    OR
    angular velocity2 X radius
    Centripetal Acceleration

    Axis of motion is ______.
    • Sagittal Plane
    • Transverse (also called horizontal)
  16. ______ plane divides the body into upper and lower.
    Axis is ______.
    • Transverse
    • Longitudinal
  17. ______ plane divides body into front and back.
    Axis is ______.
    • Frontal
    • Anteroposterior
  18. Human movement normally described by relative movement between two limbs/parts of limbs (relative angular motion).
    Joint Actions
  19. Movements around the transverse axes (in sagittal plane).
    • • Flexion
    • • Extension
    • • Hyperextension
    • • Dorsiflexion/Plantar Flexion

    • • Circumduction
    • • Horizontal Abduction/Adduction
