Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The kick was executed perfectly straight at the centre of mass of the bad guy and was parallel to the floor. The total area of the kung fu master's shoe was 21 squared centimetres. The bad guy did not expect the kick and was standing perfectly straight before the kick. Will the kick kill the bad guy? If not, which organs or structures be damaged? To what extent? Will the kick propel the bad guy backwards? If yes, what distance will the bad guy travel?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0draw a sketch of the whole problem before the bad guy gets kicked and call it diagram (a), then draw another one of the bad guy being kicked and call it diagram (b) so you have the intial drawing and the final drawing

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0put the given found in diagram (a), and figure out what you have given in diagram (b) :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol start drawing the intial and final states , then put the given found in each state, after that list the formulas you know about the distance and see what you can do.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in diagram (a) you have alot of givens, so try to figure out what can you compute using these givens ^_^ then try to link it with diagram (b) Am I making any sense to you? ^^"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, that question part, about the distance he will fly backwards is easy, the hard part is to know if he will die or not... any ideas?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0depends on the force exerted and the weight of the person

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if his weight = 142 pounds and the force exerted = 2400 pounds, he won't die, but he'll suffer from deep injury, logically :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, thanks star, do you thing i should use anatomical diagrams to figure out the damage done? I understand that center of mass is somewhere in the mid section.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nope, you can rely on the center of mass ^_^ this is physics and bio is part of it and not the vise versa :) glad I could help AG ^_^
