-Giving the principles of mechanics  for physical education and sports

-Analyze exercise movement using basic laws of physics (levers, torque, mass, power, velocity, gravity, etc.)

-Demonstrate knowledge of the skeletal and muscular systems of the human body.

-Identifies major muscle groups involved in human movement.

Aims and Objectives of the module

-Learning the principles of mechanics for physical education and sports to application.

-learn the basic anatomical and kinematics and kinetic concepts

- learn how the human movement generates movement

-Learn the kinematics concepts laws and principles that govern the human movement motion,

- learn the forces action on the body in a fluid and how the human body motion is affected.
