### This module is mutually exclusive with

 SPSC2213 Mechanics of Sport Exercise 1

Module replaces

SPSC 2216 and SPSC 2217

This module is not approved as a discovery module

### Objectives

This module builds on the fundamental concepts identified in the level 1 introduction to biomechanics.

Learning outcomes
On completion of the module students will be able to:
- describe and quantify human motion clearly and unambiguously using both scalar and vector measures;
- demonstrate an understanding of the relationship between linear and angular motion;
- demonstrate an understanding of Newton's laws of motion and their angular equivalents and their implications for the quantitative analysis of human motion;
- demonstrate an understanding of the concepts of force, and moments of force and their implications for affecting human motion;
- demonstrate an understanding of the concepts of inertia, momentum, impulse and conservation of momentum and their influence on human motion;
- demonstrate an understanding of stability and equilibrium and their importance in human performance;
- demonstrate an understanding of mechanical work, power and energy and their implications for sport or exercise;
- describe the mechanical variables affecting the behaviour of bodies moving through fluids and demonstrate an understanding of their implications for sport and exercise;
- demonstrate lab specific skills relating to kinematic and kinetic data collection and analysis;
- demonstrate data manipulation and presentation;
- demonstarte the use of IT and in particular Microsoft Excel.

Skills outcomes
- Attain lab specific skills relating to kinematic and kinetic data collection and analysis;
- Data manipulation and presentation;
