(2 pts) No. Nobody can control where their center of gravity is relative to the ground when they're in the air. Why or why not (1pt) Once in the air, the body is technically a projectile. The only external force acting on a person is gravity, so the center of gravity changes due to the acceleration of gravity but we can’t change it. Moving your arms and legs does not change your center of gravity because they are not pushing or pulling anything external to your body. The class book identifies 3 factors that influence stability. During the balance/stability exercises for this week, which of those 3 was the limiting factor that caused instability? Explain. (2 pts) The 3 factors that influence stability are the height of the center of gravity, the size of the base of support, and the weight of the object. In the exercises this week, we had
