Star star star it’s clear if I was running it would be a he’ll of a lot quicker than you! Lol
I have no intention to personally argue but to only explain a concept, as for Newton you may need to read up again
Velocity of a body constant etc etc blah blah
Please point ONE thing I’ve stated that violates any part of Newton’s law.
First thing, overspeed does not increase the body ability to apply horizontal force either during or upon release!
On initial release the sprinter is able maintain the achieved speed momentarily, why? Not because they are able to increase there normal level of horizontal force!
I agree and never stated any differently. But it is not because they lack the ability to produce the necessary vertical force, which they already have been, but because they cannot replace the artificial horizontal force (the tow or wind) once it has been removed with the necessary horizontal force of their own, hence they decelearate back to their own MaxV. Again, it was the lack of horizontal force component capability, not vertical.
And as you have stated correctly, elite sprinters can produce larger vertical force but don’t use!! Yes?
So at this increased speed, they are now able to utilise there vertical potential and maintain speed.
If they had excess vertical force capability, and vertical force capability is what produces the speed, why don’t sprinters utilize this reserve of vertical power they evidently have at MaxV and push past their MaxV? Because the athletes ability to generate the vertical component is not the rate limiting factor, the horizontal component is. What you’re saying does follow, logically.
So in this context horizontal ACCELERATION is very paramount to the development of potential top speed at which point it’s the vertical that is dominant in order to maintain the horizontal
Vertical is important and necessary, but it is not the limiting factor as you’ve just stated yourself above. If you want to continue to a higher MaxV, you have to continue acceleration beyond the horizontal equilibrium reached at your current MaxV, and as you just stated horizontal acceleration is paramount.
As I think everyone has agreed horizontal is a key factor and in some a limiting potential, however it is the ability to maintain through vertical force production at top speed
You’re contradicting yourself in one sentence. If horizontal is the limiting factor as you just stated, and the athlete has the ability to generate more vertical than needed, as you said earlier in your post, then why do you still insinuate vertical force production is the key in continuing acceleration to a higher MaxV? What you’re saying does follow a logical sequence.
