Deakin is currently upgrading the DeakinAir video platform.

  • From 2016, all CloudDeakin unit sites will link to the new DeakinAir. Some units have already been trialling the new DeakinAir during T3 and that access remains unchanged. Faculty staff can access the new DeakinAir at (from 29 January 2016).
  • Other staff and students will be moved to the new DeakinAir by 10 March. We will contact you in the near future with further information on your move.
  • Migration of existing content is ongoing (it really is a big job!).
  • Faculty teaching and learning teams and the Teach Assist team from Deakin Learning Futures will assist you to become familiar with the new software.

If you have any questions about the project please contact Emily Grucza, Project Manager.

SEM327: Dynamics of machines - Physics of a golf swing

By: ... 20-Mar-13

Your task is to find a structure / machine that has some biological component to it from the world of nature or sports and analyse it using math based equations. The mechanism that you choose must have some a finite time segment, eg from the moment Tiger starts his golf swing to the point the ball takes flight, or ten flaps of a butterfly’s wings. As mentioned you will need to looks at both the kinematics of the motion and the kinetics of the motion. This is an individual based assignment, it is expected everyone will choose a different mechanism to analyse (also analysis of golf swing is not available as we’ll be doing an analysis in class).
