By Aydin Tözeren

“The human physique is a computer whose hobbies are directed by means of the soul,” wrote René Descartes within the early 17th century. The intr- sic mechanisms of this computing device steadily grew to become transparent throughout the exertions of Renaissance scientists. Leonardo da Vinci is one such scientist from this era of enlightenment. In pursuit of information, Leonardo dissected the our bodies of greater than 30 women and men. He sawed the bones lengthwise, to determine their inner constitution; he sawed the cranium, lower throughout the vertebrae, and confirmed the spinal wire. within the technique, he took vast notes and made conscientiously particular sketches. His drawings d- ferentiated muscle mass that run throughout numerous joints from these muscle groups that act on a unmarried joint. “Nature has made all of the muscle tissues appertaining to the movement of the feet connected to the bone of the leg and never to that of the thigh,” wrote Leonardo in 1504 subsequent to 1 of his sketches of the reduce extremity, “because while the knee joint is flexed, if connected to the bone of the thigh, those muscle groups will be sure below the knee joint and wouldn't be capable of serve the ft. an analogous happens within the hand due to the flexion of the elbow. ” one other Renaissance pupil who made basic contributions to the body structure of flow is Giovanni Alfonso Borelli. Born in 1604 in Naples, Borelli used to be a well-respected mathematician.

Hence, the discovery that in our universe equality exists, at least within the realm of contact forces. Magnificent structures built by men thousands of years ago suggest that ancient civilizations were at least intuitively aware of many of the subtle features of the laws of motion. However, it took many millennia for a human to state these laws in an explicit and concise manner. Greek philosophers, among them Aristotle, had attempted to formulate the physical laws of motion but they all failed.

Taking the time derivative of the position vector, we determine the velocity of the elbow: v ϭ L der/dt v ϭ L (d␪/dt) (Ϫsin ␪ e1 ϩ cos ␪ e2) ϭ L (d␪/dt) et in which et is perpendicular to er as shown in Fig. 7. 4.
