Joint Reaction Forces

Muscle Moments

Joint Power

• Law of Inertia: A body at rest stays at rest and a body in motion stays in motion unless acted upon by a force or torque.

• Law of Acceleration: The acceleration a body experiences is directly proportional to the force or torque, inversely proportional to the mass or moment of inertia and occurs in the direction of the force or torque.

• Law of Reaction: For every action there is an opposite reaction.

Law of Inertia: A body at rest stays at rest and a body in motion stays in motion unless acted upon by a force or torque.

Mass is the measure of an object’s resistance to linear change.

Moment of inertia is the measure of an object’s resistance to angular change.

ΣF = m a ΣT = Iα

To solve for forces and torques, we need both mass and moment of inertia.

ICG= 3.5 kg·m2

• The Moment of Inertia (I) represents an objects resistance to angular change about some axis.

• Moment of inertia is a sum of the product of mass times the squared distance of the mass about the axis.

• When body parts are moved closer to the axis of rotation the moment of inertia (resistance to spin) is reduced.

ICG= 15 kg·m2

ICG= 6.5 kg·m2

ICG= 83 kg·m2

• Each segment has a fixed mass located at its center of mass

• The joints are considered as hinge joints

• The moment of inertia is fixed during movement

• The length of each segment is constant

• Mass & moment of inertia of each segment.

• Location of each segments Center of Mass (CM).

• Position, velocity, acceleration of each segments CM (x, y, Vx, Vy, Ax, Ay).

• Angular position, velocity, acceleration about each segments CM (Θ, ω, α).

• External forces for all contact points.

• Center of pressure or location of external forces acting on the body.

Center of Pressure gives the location of external forces acting on the body.
