In one model of jogging, the energy expenditure is assumed to go into accelerating and decelerating the legs.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If the mass of the legs is m and the running speed is v*, calculate the energy to accelerate and decelerate a leg. Assume that each leg starts in each step at a velocity v = 0 and accelerates to v=v*

Any ideas??
