DESCRIPTION

Students will learn to appreciate the consequences of external forces, how the body generates internal forces to maintain position, and how forces create movement in physical activities. The accompanying web resource includes all of the problems from the book, separated by chapter, plus 10 sample problems. This text is also enhanced with access to MaxTRAQ Educational 2D software which enables students to analyze and quantify real-world sport movements in video clips and upload their own video content for analysis. In this book, exercise and sport biomechanics are made simple.
