### How does momentum affect Long Jump?

In long jump, momentum plays a crucial role in propelling the athlete forward and increasing the distance covered. The greater the speed and body mass of the athlete during takeoff, the more momentum they can generate for the jump. This momentum helps the athlete maintain their velocity in the air and cover a longer distance.

### What has greater momentum and athlete with a mass of 90 kg or one with 100kg and they have the same velocity?

The athlete with a mass of 100 kg will have greater momentum because momentum is directly proportional to mass. Both athletes have the same velocity, so the athlete with the larger mass will have the greater momentum.

### Why does an athlete run certain distance before taking a long jump?

Its to build up forward momentum so that when they jump they already have a forward motion that would be greater than that of a jump made from standing in one spot. You need forward momentum to get a good long jump and the best way is to have a running start.

### Which voltage is greater in thyristor whether forward breakover or reverse breakdown voltage?

### Which voltage is greater in thyristor whether forward break over or reverse breakdown voltage?

It is stated that one of the voltage is greater in thyristor whether it be forward breakover or reverse breakdown voltage. It is also stated that the greater of the 2 voltages in thyristor is the forward breakover voltage.

### Would a fitter athlete have a higher respiratory rate?

No. A fitter athlete will have a higher tidal volume, and greater oxygen transport; fewer deeper breaths doing more work.

### Can ground reaction force on the athlete's foot be greater than their body weight?
