Physics and the Vertical Jump
Offenbacher, Elmer L.
Amer J Phys, 38, 7, 829-36, Jul '70
The physics of vertical jumping is described as an interesting illustration for motivating students in a general physics course to master the kinematics and dynamics of one dimensional motion. The author suggests that mastery of the physical principles of the jump may promote understanding of certain biological phenomena, aspects of physical education, and even documents of ancient history.
