The angular velocities of the plates and the velocity of Earth’s centr from space geodesy

Click here to edit the title

Daneil Avery's insight:

 

 

Summary:

This gave article numerous examples about angular velocity. The article is based on what seems a daunting topic and unrelated to diving. But angular velocity is a vector quantity and would be useful to use this in describing exactly what is happening when the diver is starting to dive to unfolding before entering the water. This would be something useful in the paper describing velocity.

Summary:

It was something I ran accrose when I was serching angular momentum and its useful because it gives another view of how people use angular momentum. Works.

The AfterMatter » The Physics of Gymnastics: Vaulting and Newton’s Laws of Motion

"In gymnastics, gymnasts learn to manipulate their bodies in order to take advantage of Newton’s Laws of Motion so that they can pull off spectacular tricks. So, how do they do it?"


Via Amy Hart
Daneil Avery's insight:

 

 

Summary:

This article did give some examples of Newton's laws along with angular momentum in English. It was a good place. I would like to use this in the start of my paper explaining why the other topics I'm going to talk about act the way they do. The reader would benefit from something explained so well. I look forward to being able to use this.

The Physics of Gymnastics

 

Summary:

I found this article helpful with the physics aspect of gymnastics, as appose to just giving a description of gymnastics and how to do a particular skill.  It analyzes rotational velocity, air time, gravity, force, acceleration, Newton's Third Law of Motion, and angular momentum.  A brief description of how to increase the downward force when vaulting with a springboard.  One example is to just run faster toward the vault and springboard, because a higher velocity means a higher momentum.  This allows the gymanst to exert a greater downward force on the springboard, which launches her further into the air.

Summary:

With this book, at first glace is just useless. The reason I think its relevant is when it’s applicable in the paper; I would like to insert how the physics equation plays out. This book is providing useful information on equations and how they would work. I'm specifically interested in trying to use one when I explain angular momentum. I think it will help the reader understand how it’s explained in the language of mathematics alongside the explanation they receive in English.

Fundamentals of Physics

Fundamentals of Physics | Diving | Scoop.it
Daneil Avery's insight:

 

Summary:

In this wonderful book, want to pull from two chapters to explain the concepts. of Kinetic energy and potential energy. Kinetic energy is alongside work but I only want the kinetic energy portion. Kinetic energy I'm pulling from 7.3. With potential energy I will be using 8.1. Both of these give wonderful easy to understand explanations of the concepts. It is something that is useful for explaining when the diver is at the start of a dive and describing what happens during a tuck on the way down before entering the water. It will provide a stable ground for the reader.

Summary:

In my platform diving, I want to explain power and work. This I originally checked out just to read and look at for a different point of view. This is why I chose this book, for the explonatins of power and work are good. It will help explain the entrence and the push off of the diver.

Daneil Avery's insight:

 


Summary:

Why was I reading a book about electromagnetism, optics and modern physics. Well this book provided a lot of net and interesting information. The section, that directly applies to my topic of platform diving is in chapter 4 page 101. The description of how work being done can be described in changes of kinetic energy. To me this was relivent to my topic and I will be incorporating it in when I talk about work and potential energy. I can't wait to use this book.

Regulation of angular impulse during fall recovery

Click here to edit the title

Daneil Avery's insight:

 

Summary:

Actually quite useful information was found in this article. They talk about angular impulse and center of mass. This would be quite useful when I'm talking about the entrance the diver is doing into the water and exactly what happens.

This artical is very insightful when it comes to the concepts of angular momentum and impulse. Will be useful throughout the paper given all the concepts this artical touches on.

Daneil Avery's insight:

 

Summary:

This is something I'd need to put in the start of the paper right before the diver begins anything. I think it’s extremely important for the concept of anything I'm going to explain in the paper. Every concept depends on this understanding, and I liked the explanation this site gave.

Summary:

This was somthing is something I'm going to use for an extra example of why the diver needs to be in the air for a long time before they enter the water.This artical even though it's short provids a wonderful explonatin that is extremly conceptual.

The Twisted Physics of 5 Olympic Sports

 

Summary:

This article has solidified what I have read in other sources.  Angular momentum is obviously a huge part of gymnastics--spinning and rotating in a turn or a tuck position.  The speed of a gymnast tumbling will increase to make up the difference and keep her total angular momentum constant.  Newton's Third Law of Motion is also very important in gymnastics.  In gymnastics this is done by pushing hard against the floor, balance beam, or vault, in turn these surfaces push back hard against the gymnast, which gives her lift into the air.

Daneil Avery's insight:

 

Summary: I wish I could just use this whole book because its that wonderful. I actually wound up buying it. I will be using two chapters from this book. This will help explain angular momentum and center of mass. Both are from chapter 7. The center of mass is going to explain why the diver spins the way they do. The angular momentum is going to help explain what happens when the diver is spinning in air and why they keep spinning.

Summary;

This book, I'm going to be using chapters 4.2 for Newton's Third law. I also will be using chapter 5.3 page 103 for explanation of torque. This will be useful when the diver is at the start of a handstand dive and is about to do a tuck. It will be helpful in the explanations of handstand dive on a platform to doing a flip before entering the water.

Summary:

In this book, I want to use the chapter 5/6 they are on fluids. It will also give wonderful information on fluid dynamics. This will help explain why the diver is positioned the way they are when they enter the water and exactly what happens when they enter the water.
