The aim of the course is to deepen the knowledge of physics (especially mechanics) and their application in the field of biomechanics. Teaching focuses on topics such as vector operations, motion geometry and quantities describing motion kinematics, motion dynamics and its energy aspect. An important aspect is the influence of the environment on human physical movement. Seminars will be held in a computer lab focusing on deepening Excel spreadsheet knowledge and graphical solutions for working with physical variables.
