  • Essay On Figure Skating

    Introduction As a figure skater with an enthusiasm for figure skating for many years, my choice of investigation for my internal assessment came to me quite easily. I have been a figure skater for eleven years and during this period I have been able to deepen my knowledge of the relationship between body coordinates and movements/positions of figure skating. I will be investigating the relationship between the body’s initial and interim positions and the outcome of a figure skater’s trajectory during a jump as well as a figure skater’s angular momentum during counterclockwise rotational spins. A figure skater is trained to use a double axel, a jump with forward takeoff, with a split jump to create a parabolic leap in the air. A double axel contains an additional rotation in the air due to the forward takeoff. Assuming that there is no friction on the ice and no resistance in the air, every figure skater must be concerned about his maximum height, horizontal and vertical displacement and the speed required to perform a perfect jump with a double axel. A figure skater’s trajectory can be determined by the initial takeoff angle of the ice skate’s blade, initial velocity, and the initial height of the takeoff. The peak of the figure skater’s vertical displacement is also known as the figure skater’s maximum value due…

  • Check Please Analysis

    In this revision of my micro essay, “Gender, Sexuality, and Sports in Check, Please!,” I will focus on the idea of being queer in sports, namely hockey, and how masculinity and sports culture in the webcomic’s world affect these characters (in this case, Jack Zimmermann and Eric Bittle). In order to support this idea, I will be using several of the comics, ranging from year one to the most current update, and analyzing certain aspects of them in depth. This would differ from my original essay,…

  • Personal Narrative: Hopelessness In The United States

    raining, I'm also horribly sick. With snot dripping from my nose; a box of seemingly useless Kleenexes to the side of the bed, the seconds tick by one after the other. Each minute seeming as long as, or longer than, an hour. I lie in bed, with my eyes closed, but sleep does not come, I'm starving, yet on the verge of vomiting. My mother is out in the cold, with rain pouring down, in order to bring back food, and for this I feel grateful. Better to be sick now than later, I conclude, aware of the…

  • Ice Princess: The Physics Behind Figure Skating

    Physics Behind Figure Skating Growing up as a child, I always went to the RDV and saw girls my age participating in figure skating. That is when my fascination began. However, I could not join because I was already committed to dancing. Additionally, a movie came out on Disney Channel when I was younger; it was called Ice Princess. The movie centered on a girl focused on physics and she had a similar project as mine: looking at the physics of ice-skating. As she spent time videotaping and making…
