As a member of this class, you tacitly agree to its terms. After-the-fact ignorance of its contents will not exempt you from the responsibilities and policies it outlines. 1. Course Description Principles of mechanics applied to the study of human motion. Internal and external forces acting on the body. Methods for quantifying motion and measuring forces and energetics of human movement. Roles of muscles for the generation of force, work and power, and for controlling movement are emphasized through inverse dynamics analysis and electromyographic kinesiology. 2. General objectives of the course To introduce the scientific principles and laws underlying the field of biomechanics. To describe how biomechanical principles can be applied to understanding and analyzing the causes of human movements and their effects on the body. 3. Specific objectives of the course Have a broad appreciation of the scope of biomechanics and its applications. Understand the fundamental mechanical principles used in biomechanics. Be able to discuss, develop, and apply mechanical principles to a range of sport, exercise, and clinical problems. Be able to describe forces and motion verbally, graphically, and mathematically. Apply formulae to quantify a variety of biomechanical aspects of movement.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
