Transcript of The Three Newtons Laws In Swimming

How does Newtons
second law affect
swimming? How speed, acceleration, and velocity
affect swimming. Newtons third law. Newtons Law's in swimming. Newtons second
law Who is Isaac Newton?
Newton was an English physicist, mathematician, astronomer, and a natural philosopher. Newton described universal gravitation and the three laws of motion. In swimming, many swimmers tend to push off the wall
of the pool to get a speedy start. The force in this situation
is that the push from your legs which causes your body to accelerate in the direction of the push another example is just swimming Force from point A transferring to object B In swimming for example when you pull the water
down your side using the breast stroke the water moves down towards your feet while you are propelled forward.
The action in this is because you would be moving your arm in the water and the equal reaction is the water pushing back on you. How does Newtons fist law affect swimming? In Newtons First law of motion, an object in motion stays in motion. And an object at rest stays at rest. in swimming unless you move your arms and legs to push yourself against of water you will remain where you are (an object at rest stays at rest) Newtons second law states that an object will accelerate in the direction of the force, it also includes the formula
F=m(a) (force=mass(acceleration) The relationship between force and velocity in swimming has been investigated under both passive and active conditions. The most basic form of the equation is expressed as: D = kvn, where D is the drag force on the body; k includes the coefficient of drag and an area variable; and v is the swimming velocity raised to an exponent of n. In swimming to maximize your speed you need to
minimize your surface. acceleration in swimming the rate of which the velocity of the body changes with time. in swimming the acceleration of the speed slowing or speeding up.
