Hello guys I am a Ninth Grader from QCSD and I someday want to be a doctor so I would like to learn a lot from this discussion.

The Science of Motion
Branch of physics and a subdivision of classical mechanics concerned with the geometrically possible motion of a body or system of bodies without consideration of the forces involved (i.e., causes and effects of the motions). Kinematics aims to provide a description of the spatial position of bodies or systems of material particles, the rate at which the particles are moving (velocity) and the rate at which their velocity is changing (acceleration) … in unconstrained or free motion, the forces determine the shape of the path. Branch of classical mechanics that concerns the effect of forces and torques on the motion of bodies having mass. Authors using the term kinetics apply the nearly
synonymous name dynamics to the classical mechanics of moving bodies. The art of making inanimate objects appear to move. Animation is an artistic impulse that long predates the movies.
History’s first recorded animator is Pygmalion of Greek and Roman mythology, a sculptor who created a figure of a woman so perfect that he fell in love with her and begged Venus to bring her to life. Some of the same sense of magic, mystery and transgression still adheres to contemporary film animation, which has made it a primary vehicle for exploring the overwhelming, often bewildering emotions of childhood – feelings once dealt with by folktales.
Complex biomechanical research is being done to improve the effectiveness of the drills performed, prevent injuries and improve the movement of athletes and non-athletes alike.
David Keeley is an assistant professor of biomechanics - or the mechanics of motion in the human body - for the human performance dance and recreation department at NMSU. Keeley has been conducting research regarding the biomechanics of movement in athletes since 2006.
Keeley is currently working on an assessment tool in order to identify individuals who have a high probability of getting injured. Once these individuals are isolated and factors contributing to their risk of injury are detected, coaches and trainers can work on strengthening these weak points to decrease their risk of injury and hopefully help them avoid injury altogether.
Edgar Degas was one of the founders of Impressionism although he rejected the term and preferred to be called a realist. His nudes offer the fullest expression of the fascination with human form. Degas’s nudes demonstrate his meticulous study of anatomy and movement, and his attention to the grace and elegance of the body.
Software that models human movement debuts at tech museum - OpenSim, Stanford-developed software that uses physics and anatomy to create 3D simulations of human movement, is now on display at The Leonardo, a science and technology museum. OpenSim is open sourced and free for everyone to use.
