In this paper, information regarding the reduction of gravity is converted to microgravity. Microgravity is defined as little gravity because mikros is a (Greek) term for small (NASA, 2014). The word gravity is defined as any environment where gravity levels are significantly reduced compared to those we experience at Earth’s surface (NASA, 2014).
Have you ever wondered what would happen to the human body if there was no gravity on earth? How would our bodies function? What types of physical affects would this have on the bones, muscles, neurological, and the cardiovascular system? These are questions that often cross in our thoughts and of Sir Isaac Newton; and the answers are in the human body.
The scientific approaches and supported by evidence-based research to provide a brief description of the human body response to zero gravity in this paper.
Since the beginning of time, gravity has been around us. The important things we take for granted like the ability to move our body parts, agriculture or the cultivation and breeding of animals, even the structural support of buildings and roads are all influenced by gravity. Gravity is an invisible force that brings any object with energy and mass to its center and is made of quantum particles called gravitations.
These small scales of atoms and sub atoms of energy gives weight to any physical object and impacts natural phenomenon. It keeps us to the Earth’s land surface, the

The Standard Model of particle physics is a theory concerning the electromagnetic, weak and strong forces, as well as classifying all the subatomic particles known. It was developed as a collaborative effort of scientists around the world during the latter half of the 20th century. Because of its success in explaining wide variety of experimental results, the Standard Model is often referred to as a "theory of almost everything". Although the Standard Model is quite consistent, it does not address some profound questions about the nature of the universe and it does leave some phenomena unexplained. One of these phenomena that the Standard Model doesn't explain is gravity. (CERN, 2015)
The general and widespread acceptance of Sir Isaac Newton’s models and laws may often be taken for granted, but this has not always been so. Throughout history, scientists and philosophers have built on each other’s theories to create improved and often revolutionary models. Although Newton was neither the first nor the last to bring major innovations to society, he was one of the most notable ones; many of his contributions are still in use today. With the formulation of his laws of motion, Sir Isaac Newton contributed to the downfall of Aristotelianism and provided a universal quantitative system for approximating and explaining a wide range of phenomena of space and the physics of motion, revolutionizing the study and understanding
Many people are under the assumption that kinesiology was introduced to the world in the more recent years. They tend to date its beginnings to when it became the science and subject matter we have come to know today and was introduced in our school systems as a potential degree to major in. Through research and digging into the world’s history I have found the origins of kinesiology to date back as far as 384 B.C. In this paper I will be uncovering the roots of the science we are familiar with today and introduce you to the key players who contributed to the science and fundamentals that encompass this incredible area of study.
Outline the anatomy and physiology of the human body in relation to the importance of correct moving and positioning of individuals
Before Newton talked about gravitation the main knowledge of scientists was a elementary knowledge of optics, mechanics and astronomy.Copernicus Kepler and Galileo provided the background knowledge of the stars and planets, but Newton used their data to discover the whole gravitational system.10Newton reasoned that the planets and all other physical objects in the universe moved through mutual attraction of gravity.Newton said that every other object in the universe affected every other object through gravity.This explained why the planets move in an orderly fashion. Newton found that “the force of gravity towards the whole planet did arise from and was compounded of the forces of gravity towards all it’s parts, and towards every one part was in the inverse proportion of the squares of the distances from this part.”Newton proves all of this mathematically. This was known to be the single most important contribution to physics that ever has been made.11
The objective of this practical is to determine acceleration due to gravity ‘g’ using the simple pendulum model. This is shown when a period of oscillation is seen to be independent of the mass of the mass ‘m’.
