Thecurious1 said:Summary:: So i was watching ESPN sport science where they calculated the force production of nba player Dwight Howard. Dwight weight is 280lbs and he produce 1210lbs of force launching himself more than 30 inches off the ground. Now this got me thinking about another player Rudy Gobert. Rudy has a 5 inches higher standing reach than dwight and only weighed in at 238lbs. Now i wonder therotically how high would Rudy be able to jump if he produce 1210lbs of force aswell?

That is certainly one way of doing it. The Energy based calculation is just as valid and equates the Integrated Force times distance to give the Energy input to the jumper which gives the increase in Gravitational Potential Energy (i.e. max height). An advantage of this approach is that it needs no measurement of time - just the geometry of the athlete.PeroK said:The important quantity for jumping is impulse, which is force multiplied by time.

The formula for calculating jump height using force and weight is: jump height = (force x weight) / (mass x gravity), where force is measured in Newtons, weight is measured in kilograms, mass is the person's body mass in kilograms, and gravity is the acceleration due to gravity (9.8 m/s²).
Yes, jump height can be accurately calculated using force and weight as long as the measurements are accurate and the formula is used correctly.
The person's weight is a crucial factor in calculating jump height as it affects the amount of force needed to overcome gravity and propel the body upwards.
Yes, the formula for calculating jump height using force and weight is the same for all individuals. However, the individual's weight and body mass will affect the end result.
Yes, other factors such as the individual's muscle strength, technique, and surface they are jumping on can also affect jump height.
