I’ve a problem calculating the vertical jump from ground reaction force. We tested a person with a force plate, and we got this curve as a result:
2. Relevant equations
These are the equations, sorry for the danish language, but just look at the equations and not the text.
3. The attempt at a solution
fg is 9.82, but maybe it should be the persons weight in newton?
deltat= 0.04, but maybe it should be (2.44-1.34) because that is the time for the entire jump?
Either way, i don’t get a useful result.
Thanks for looking at it, feel free to ask if you need additional info 🙂
