What is Running: Definition and 385 Discussions

Running is a method of terrestrial locomotion allowing humans and other animals to move rapidly on foot. Running is a type of gait characterized by an aerial phase in which all feet are above the ground (though there are exceptions). This is in contrast to walking, where one foot is always in contact with the ground, the legs are kept mostly straight and the center of gravity vaults over the stance leg or legs in an inverted pendulum fashion. A feature of a running body from the viewpoint of spring-mass mechanics is that changes in kinetic and potential energy within a stride occur simultaneously, with energy storage accomplished by springy tendons and passive muscle elasticity. The term running can refer to any of a variety of speeds ranging from jogging to sprinting.
Running in humans is associated with improved health and life expectancy.It is assumed that the ancestors of humankind developed the ability to run for long distances about 2.6 million years ago, probably in order to hunt animals. Competitive running grew out of religious festivals in various areas. Records of competitive racing date back to the Tailteann Games in Ireland between 632 BCE and 1171 BCE, while the first recorded Olympic Games took place in 776 BCE. Running has been described as the world's most accessible sport.

    I How can you make a free body diagram for someone running then sliding?

    Let's say you are riding a bike very fast, and then you sharply turn into a slide (where the bike is sliding perfectly sideways). I'm trying to calculate the angle that the bike would be leaning at, but I'm having trouble creating the free body diagram. Right now I have the normal force and...

    Saving the state of a program versus running the program

    Hello Forum, I am not completely clear on the idea of saving the state of a Python program. We can write a .py program which has instructions, formulas, variables, user inputs, and uses data from an external file, etc., and run such file. However, running the program is different from saving...

Also is it bad for the cathode...

    How can rounding errors affect calculations in stopping distance?

    I did the first three questions and found that the ignition distance without breaking would be 75 m, it would take 8.3 seconds to stop the car with a maximum acceleration of -3.0 m/s^2 and you would go 103,75 m if so.
