LINEAR AND ANGULAR MOMENTUM OF THE UPPER BODY IN TENNIS FOREHANDS
Keywords: pelvic torque, impulse, angular impulse
AbstractLinear momentum and angular momentum are said to be the two sources of power in the tennis forehand and they “should act together in a coordinated manner” (Groppel, 1992). However, the relationship between them has not been investigated. Thus, the purposes of this study were to determine linear and angular momentum of the upper body in tennis forehands and to investigate their coordination.
