Module Contents

Preliminary Motion  Considerations,  Basıc  concepts,(work, strenght, Power, velocity, impuls, momentum, torque, energy)  Motion and  forms of  motion, Linear kinematics, Angular kinematics,  Linear  Kinetics, Angular  Kinetiks,  Equilibrium and  centre of gravity in the human body,  The body as a lever system, Analysis of  joint mechanics, Mechanics of  Cardiovascular  system Analysis of Force acting on human body  of sports techniques, Analysis of Sports techniques (Running, jumping, throwing, gymnastics, football, Basketball, Swimming) Human performance analysis, (Muscle and joint acting).

Aims and Objectives of the module

- 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

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

- learn the basic anatomical and kinematic and kinetic concepts

- learn how the human movement generates movement

- Larnn the kinematic concepts laws and principles that govern the human movement motion,

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