Kinesiology 430 Lab Quizzes Quiz 1 Biomechanics Lab Instrumentation 1 While there are several methods that can be used to collect kinematic data during human movement camera systems are the most widely used a True b False 2 Kinetic data are typically collected using a a Motion capture system b Force transducer c Goniometer 3 For collecting kinematic data reflective markers are frequently placed on the surface of the skin overlying bony landmarks Why is this not ideal a Because the adhesive is so strong the markers will never come off b Because skin is reflective which will cause errors during data collection c Because the skin and underlying tissue move relative to the bones 4 The cameras used in the UMass biomechanics laboratory are of what type a Analog b Digital c Nikon 5 The force platform in the UMass biomechanics laboratory is a a Strain gauge platform b Bathroom scale c Piezoelectric force sensor Quiz 2 Quiz 3 Projectile Motion 1 Which characteristic of a projectile can be manipulated at the instant it is released into flight a Weight of the object b Angle of release c Wind resistance 2 If we assume air resistance is negligible both the horizontal and the vertical components of the motion of the projectile represent a Uniformly accelerated motion b Only vertical motion c Constant velocity motion 3 The horizontal velocity at the end of a projectile s flight is the horizontal velocity at the beginning of its flight a Greater than b Less than c Equal to 4 In Part 1 of this lab you will be examining the effects of increases in speed by manipulating what variable a Rubber band strength b Rubber band length c Cannon height 5 For a projectile gravity affects motion only a Resultant b Horizontal c Vertical Quiz 4 Angular Kinematics 1 Goniometers measure a Lengths b Angles c Temperature 2 For this lab we will use the electro goniometer to measure a Shoulder joint angles b Thumb joint angles c Knee joint angles 3 The voltage signal from the electro goniometer is
