Fundamentals of Biomechanics. Biomechanics. Applying the concepts of physics and mechanics to the way the body moves and how it applies force to itself and other objects Understanding biomechanics can help improve performance and reduce injuries in sport . Kinematics.

2. A high jumper with a body weight of 712 N exerts a force of 3000 N against the ground during takeoff. How much force does the ground exert on the high jumper?
Example: Shot Put
Equation: Moment of Force= force x distance to fulcrum (Nm)
Size of the Torque depends on
1. the size of the force
2. the direction of the force
3. how far the force is applied from axis
