The Physics Behind Gymnastics
Transcript of The Physics Behind Gymnastics
Newtons third law in gymnastics
Newtons first law in gymnastics
Her body starts at rest and then the force is applied (the swing), and this gets her in motion. The gymnast gains enough momentum to keep swinging up and around the bar and she will then continue to do so until she applies another force to stop herself.
How is gymnastics connected to Science
This topic is connected to science because without newtons laws gymnastics would not be possible. Newton third law states that there is an opposite and equal reaction force for every action on an object. This applies to gymnastics because the balance beam supports the weight of the gymnast as she preforms her routine. The beam is exerting an equal amount of force against the gymnast as she does her skills
Newtons third law
For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
The gymnast puts a force on the vault and the vault reacts with a equal amount of force repelling her off the vault.

Angles in gymnastics
If you take off for a skill at a good angle then you can perfect any skill.
