Table of Contents :

Part I: External Biomechanics; Chapter 1. Forces: Maintaining Equilibrium or Changing Motion; Chapter 3. Linear Kinetics; Chapter 4. Work, Power, and Energy; Chapter 5. Torques and Moments of Force; Chapter 6. Angular Kinematics; Chapter 7. Angular Kinetics; Chapter 8. Fluid Mechanics; Part II: Internal Biomechanics; Chapter 9. Mechanics of Biological Materials; Chapter 10. The Skeletal System; Chapter 11. The Muscular System; Chapter 12. The Nervous System; Part III: Applying Biomechanical Principles; Chapter 13. Qualitative Biomechanical Analysis to Improve Technique; Chapter 14. Qualitative Biomechanical Analysis to Improve Training; Chapter 15. Qualitative Biomechanical Analysis to Understand Injury; Chapter 16. Technology in Biomechanics.


Students will learn to appreciate the consequences of external forces, how the body generates internal forces to maintain position, and how forces create movement in physical activities. The accompanying web resource includes all of the problems from the book, separated by chapter, plus 10 sample problems. This text is also enhanced with access to MaxTRAQ Educational 2D software which enables students to analyze and quantify real-world sport movements in video clips and upload their own video content for analysis. In this book, exercise and sport biomechanics are made simple.
