Course objectives
At the end of this course, students should be able to: explain the fundamental mechanics laws and principles, to sinthesize these knowledges with biologicals systems knowledges earlier acquired, to apply the bases of this synergetic discipline to human motion system and to sports movement.
  • Definition of biomechanics, importace, history. Physical base of biomechanics - Kinematics: mass point, distance, velocity, acceleration, straight motion, accelerated motion, cirgular motion. Dynamics: force, energy, work, power, conservation of energy. Mechanics of liquid and gas. Biological base of biomechanics. Measurement and experiment in biomechanics.
