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).
