My topic for the physics project is Anterior Cruciate ligament (ACL) tear. I need to relate to kinematics and figure how some graphs and calculations. I need help, I am very confused on how to start off and where exactly to start off. Below is what I need to figure out...
Stage 1: Kinematics
out the kinematics applications, such as typical distances, displacements, speeds,
velocities, accelerations and times involved. Calculate the remaining quantities. Also find out what values are associated with
injuries or signs of poor health.
Translational motion of whole body or object
o Typical distances,
displacements, speeds, velocities, accelerations, & times → Show
calculations with formulas and cite numbers used to arrive at calculation
associated with injury or poor health → Contrast with typical case illustrated
o Free Fall and
air resistance, if applicable → Is it reasonable to neglect air
Projectile Motion, if applicable → Distinguish each
component of vector quantities from total.
Is this what you expected?
o If not
analyzing projectiles → What constraints are you placing, or what assumptions
are you making regarding the activity that allow you to simplify calculations?
Graphs, Motion Diagrams or Video Analysis → There is flexibility in how to approach
this. You might construct your own graph
from data that you researched or values estimated from a video, or you might
use a graph obtained elsewhere to construct a diagram.
