Objectives of the Course
The objectives of this course are: 1-To have the students understand the internal and external forces affecting human body parts and movement of these parts under the effects of these forces. 2-To master the ways of increasing efficiency in terms of linear and curvilinear motion principles. 3-To teach the students the calculation of friction force, linear and angular velocity in sport; the lever systems in joints; momentum; torque and the Newton’s Law of Motion
