Levers


Today we did an activity about levers, a lever is made up of three parts effort, Load/resistance and fulcrum.
The fulcrum is like the pivot point of the lever, the effort is the forces applied and the Load is the thing that needs effort to be applied.
There are 3 classes,
 class 1 a example is an seesaw
 class 2 a example is an wheelbarrow
 class 3 a example is an arm
Lever I are used a lot in sports for example badminton, When you hit the shuttlecock with the racket your fulcrum is your hand, the efforts is your muscles in your arm used to swing the racket and the shuttlecock is the load.
In the activity we did we had to cut out and colour in shapes and had to label them, the green was effort the yellow was fulcrum and the purple was the load. We then had to shape them into each of the classes and then we had to explain why it was that class.

Force Summation

What is Force summation? Force summation is made up of 3 parts, but the all together is means adding forces together to create the greatest force as possible.

Describe the three parts of force summation? The three parts of force summation are range of motion, order of body segments and timing of body segments.
Range of motion is the greater the range of motion the greater force produced. 
Order of body segments is when forces is transferred from the largest muscles, through to the smallest muscles. 
Lastly is timing of body segments is when each body segment should be activated when the one before it has reached its peak.

Describe the activity we completed in the gym and how this related to force summation? 
The activity we did in the gym was on the rowing machine we were giving a task to go step by step for a full row. We went from only using only our hand to using our full body. This activity showed us that the more motion we use it will generate more force. This activity used all parts of force summation like order of body segments, if you want to produce the greatest force we had to start from you legs and all the way up to your arms. if I started from somewhere else it wouldn't be the same.

Equipment affect my participation in a negative way because some of the balls where flat and when we would tried and kick the ball it would it would bounce high and go over the net.

Newtons Law of motion



  • Who is Sir Isaac Newton? Sir Isaac Newton is a scientist and philosopher who live around the 16 and 17 century. Sir Issac Newton is the person who created the laws for why things move and what cause its to move. They are called Newtons law
  • Explain the 3 Laws? There are three laws which makes up the Newton laws of motion. The first one is called The law of inertia states that an object will be at rest or stay in a constant motion unless it is compelled by an external force. Law two, The law of acceleration, this law explains how the velocity of the object changes, so the law acceleration states that the greater the mass of an object the more force it will take to accelerate the object, Force = mass x acceleration (F=mxa) Law Three, The law of Action/Reaction, This law states that for every actions there is an equal and opposite reaction. For example imagine an trampoline, The action is you pushing down on the tramp and the reaction is the tramp pushing you back up the tramp.
  • How did the game ‘inertia ball’ demonstrate Newton’s Laws? The game inertia ball demonstrated the newtons law a lot. The game demonstrated the law of action/reaction because when we threw the ball at the ball it would react and would bounce back to us. The game also demonstrated the law of inertia because if when we didn't throw balls and the moon ball is would stay in a constant motion going in its direction until it was hit by another ball. The game also demonstrated the law of acceleration because the amount of force on the ball depended the size of the ball, so when we threw the basketball we need more force to throw it because it was the ball with the most mass.

Environment affected my participation in a negative way because it was windy and when we passed the Frisbee it would sometimes fly somewhere else which made it annoying. Skill Level affected my participation in a positive way because I knew good techniques on how to pass the Frisbee, so I had the skills to pay the bills.
  • How could you increase your (or your peers) participation in this activity in the future? I think I could improve my performance by helping my teammate more, like teaching them how to throw the Frisbee.

Balance and stability



Three parts of balance and stability are called (COG) Centre of gravity, (LOG) Line of gravity and (BOS) Base of support. To increase you balance and stability you can change the position of your stance by widening you base of support and lowering you centre of gravity and try and keep you line of gravity close to the middle of your base of support. The task we were instructed to do was to try and get into position and create a structure from a sheet of paper which showed different structures we could make and to try and find the COG,LOG and BOS in each structure. What I enjoyed in the activity was that we all came together to make something that I never thought we could do, What was difficult for me was when someone was on my back and would dig there hand into my back which made my back sore and made me almost collapse.

Some movements in the body are, Knee flexion, elbow flexion, hip extension, hip flexion, etc. An example of hip flexion in a sport is in football, when you kick the ball. When you kick the ball your your hip and leg go back, the agonist is your gluteus maximus and your antagonist is your illopsoas and satorious.

Choose one activity we have completed in class and describe what your task was.
An activity We did was to draw all the muscle and bone that we were learning about on ovaralls a teammate wore. There were 2 sides, on one half was all the bones and on the other half was all the muscles.

Skeletal System

For the Past week we have been learning about the Anatomy and Bio mechanics.
The many components but we have been learning about the skeletal system. There are 4 types of bone in your body Flat bone, long bones, Short bones and irregular bones.
Long bones produce red bed cells e.g. humerus and femur
Short bones function are to produce small movement e.g. carpals and tarsals

Flat bones function is to protect organs in the body e.g. cranium and scapula
Irregular bones are all of the others bones, which have various functions e.g. vertebrae
We than had to remember the 20 important bones in the skeletal system which are in the photo
and had to make the skeleton which is in the photo and labelled them.
