This covers topic 2: Exercise Physiology and Applied Movement Analysis: 2.7: Fluid Mechanics. You get the students worksheet, teachers worksheet with answers and powerpoint. Students will have to use books as well to answer the questions as there are independent studies in the worksheet. Plus exam questions at the end. Please note that you may need to alter the powerpoint as I do my lessons on a mac. Furthermore, I am dyslexic, so I am sorry if I make a few mistakes.
• Describe aerodynamics and hydrodynamics to appropriate sports contexts.
• Discuss factors affecting fluid friction and air resistance: velocity, drag force, mass, streamlining and surface
• Describe the types of spin: topspin, backspin, and sidespin. Magnus effect and how they impact on flight path and bounce.
• Analyse fluid mechanics and how it has influenced technological advancements in technique modification, clothing/suits, equipment/apparatus.
