A type that deals with movement and energy expenditure…
It is used in calculations by bio-mechanists (those guys that study the mechanics of motion in sport).
I can’t exactly pinpoint what I’m trying to say (b/c then I wouldn’t have to ask)…
Let’s suppose that I want to calculate the punch that has the most force - taking into account all the details (angle of hand/wrist, area of target, orientation of legs, energy used during release).
What kind of physics (or principles relating thereto) would I be using to calculate the force and the overall efficiency of the punch?
It wouldn’t come under any of the other sciences - it is more physics based.
I was thinking classical mechanics but that doesn’t take any account of energy transfer inside the body (say how potential changes to kinetic etc.).
Do any dopers know? I may end up pursuing this as a hobby - and I’m real interested and would prefer to have an equivalent field to study.
