## Extensibility and Elasticity

Extensibility is the ability to be stretched or increase in length, and elasticity is the ability to return to normal length after a stretch. Muscle’s elasticity returns it to normal resting length following a stretch and provides for the smooth tr...

## Irritability and the Ability to Develop Tension

Irritability is the ability to respond to a stimulus. Stimuli affecting muscles are either electrochemical, such as an action potential from the attaching nerve or mechanical, such as an external blow to a portion of a muscle. When activated by a sti...

## Factors Affecting Muscular Force Generation

The magnitude of the force generated by muscle is also related to the velocity of muscle shortening, the length of the muscle when it is stimulated, and the period of time since the muscle received a stimulus. Because these factors are...

## Inertia, Mass and Force

Inertia, Mass and Force Inertia means resistance to action or to change. Inertia is the tendency of a body to maintain its current state of motion, whether motionless or moving with a constant velocity. Mass is the quantity of matter composing a body...

## Centre of Gravity, Weight and Pressure

Centre of Gravity, Weight and Pressure A body’s centre of gravity, or centre of mass, is the point around which the body’s weight is equally balanced, no matter how the body is positioned. Weight is defined as the amount of gravitational force ex...

## Volume, Density, Torque and Impulse

Volume, Density, Torque and Impulse A body’s volume is the amount of space that it occupies. Density combines the mass of a body with the body volume. Density is defined as mass per unit of volume. A rotary effect created by an eccentric force is k...

## The Spinal and Biomechanic

The spinal column constitutes one of the most important bony structures we have in our body, and this is due to meet in the countless functions such as support, protection, movement, and so on. It works because it maintains support the position of ou...
