Abstract:

The purpose of the study is to investigate the center of gravity of the total arm complex during certain work movements typical of those in use in industrial tasks. The center of gravity characteristics investigated are the distance and path traveled and the nature and behavior of the velocity of the center of gravity during that travel. The results of the study can be used to further the available knowledge of applying classical mechanical laws to the human body in motion.
