The Effect of Resting on Clothespin Squeezing.

Hypothesis:

If you rest then the clothespin squeezing rate will increase.

Materials:-

Clothespin
Clock
Sneakers

Procedure:

Separate class into two groups (exercisers and resters).
Exercisers will do jumping jacks for a minute.
Exercisers and registers will squeeze clothespin for a minute
Repeat steps two and three. Total of three trails.

Precaution:

Shoes must be tied.
Space between exercisers.
Healthy exercisers only.

Data analysis:

The data collected from this experiment shows the following information.

For the group of students who rested first, the average clothespin squeezes per minute (cps/min) were 142, 172, and 190.42. Combined the overall average for this group was 168.14 cps/min.
For the group of students who rested first, the average clothespin squeezes per minute (cps/min) were 129, 123, and 190. Combined the overall average for this group was 147.4 cps/minutes.

Conclusion:

Based on the data in the experiment, i can conclude that that the group that exercised first before squeezing the clothespin did better than the group that rested first before squeezing the clothespin.This is supported by the fact that the average of exercising then squeezing the clothespin was 168.14 per minute. the average of resters was 147.4 per minute. the average of exercisers was higher than the average of resters.

the scientific evidence didn’t support the hypothesis that if you rest than the clothespin squeezing rate will increase. when you exercise then the pulse rate increases. the blood flow will go faster. Oxygen and nutrients go into the cells for the process of cellular respiration. Waste products are made and need to leave the cell. The increased waste products caused muscle fatigue.

Discussion:

This experiment is about the effect of exercise on muscles. There are many reasons why muscles might fatigue when exercise is performed. One

    Does exercise make your muscles tired? In my controlled experiment I investigated this problem. My hypothesis was “If I rest first then I can squeeze the clothespin more times” My reason behind this is because during exercise I think you tire yourself out more, so resting before squeezing could increase number of squeezes.…

    Muscle Fatigue

    In this experiment muscles will be tested with weight, to see if weight is truly a factor in muscle fatigue. Muscle fatigue is the muscle’s ability to contract exert its normal strength due to physical stress upon it. The structure of a muscle include a thin layer called epimysium which surrounds the entire muscle, deeper to the epimysium is the perimysium. This layer contains fascicles which are bundles of muscle cells. In between the muscle cells are endomysium which is just connective tissue. The muscle cell (fiber) can be broken down even futher. Deeper to the muscle fiber is the sarcplasm which is cytoplasm in the muscle cells, this cytoplasm contains myofibrils which are just bundles of filaments. Now, myofibrils shorten, tis makes muscles contract and allows for movement. Some functions of musces in our bodies include motion, maintenance of posture, and heat production. Macromolecules that aid muscle contraction are the proteins myosin (thick filaments) and actin (thin filaments), the way that this is done is that they overlap each other and during contraction which makes the muscle “shorten”.…

    Muscle fatigue is weakness or weariness resulting from exertion or prolonged stress and the failure to maintain an expected power output. (Amussen) The process by which your body produces energy is called glycolysis. During glycolysis, glycogen is broken to produce creatine phosphate, which releases energy. The energy released catalyzes a reaction to produce ATP. The ending product of glycolysis is lactic acid, which is created by breaking pyruvate acid down. Then lactic acid is broken down to produce lactate. For each compound of lactic acid that is formed the cell gains a lactate compound and an H+. The increase of H+ in a cell causes the pH to decrease, which causes the cell to become acidic. The acids in muscles cause the fibers' calcium-binding capacity to decrease, which then limits muscle contraction, which causes muscle fatigue. (Mullick) During muscle fatigue, feedback of nerve impulses from the fatigued muscles interrupts on a part of the reticular formation and causes a hang-up of voluntary effort. (Amussen) It is important to understand that muscle fatigue results from metabolic reasons and not structural changes in your muscle.…

    2. The acute responses in the musculoskeletal system are an increase in blood flow which causes the muscles to be used more frequently and are being used to work at a faster rate due to oxygen reaching these specific muscles efficiently this will increase ability and range of movement. However temperature will also increase due to overloading in the musculoskeletal system making the athlete become fatigued. Muscle pliability is when energy is used in the muscles during exercise which then produces lactic acid and causes…

    Many factors contribute to fatigue during anaerobic and aerobic exercises. The Wingate Test is strictly anaerobic by design. The two primary factors that can lead to fatigue during this test is depletion of the PCr system and buildup of lactic acid in the body. As the test is started the subjects body is forced to its maximum exertion level. The body’s store of creatine phosphate starts to drop at a rate that it cannot be replenished in time. This allows less ATP to be made and utilized by the muscles leading to fatigue. The other main cause of fatigue is the buildup of lactic acid in the body. As the PCr system is being depleted the body switches to glycolysis for energy and because the exercise is anaerobic the pyruvic acid produced is turned to lactic acid by the NADH and LDH enzyme. The muscles then can use this lactic acid to produce more ATP but there is a point where lactate exceeds this system and increases exponentially called the lactate threshold. This excess lactic acid can cause phosphofructokinase to be inhibited leading to fatigue of the…

    Muscle Fatigue

    Muscle fatigue occurs when a muscle has a diminished ability to continue to produce force, usually occurring due to extensive use of those muscles, such as when performing extraneous activity. On a molecular level, there are a number of things that happen that prevent the muscle from performing more action, ultimately to prevent any damage from being afflicted on the muscles cells. One particular effect that most people are likely familiar with is the production of a compound known as lactic acid, a compound that is derived from pyruvate that, under normal conditions, would be completely oxidized within the mitochondria of the muscle cells, which becomes lactate and becomes associated with a hydrogen ion, resulting in lactic acid (1). At one point it was believed that the production of lactic acid was a result in a lack of oxygen in the cells, but previously experiments have proved otherwise and it has been suggested that it may in fact provide some benefit during extensive muscle use (2). In addition, it has been found that fatigue in hand muscles does have some impact on gripping ability, although the previous research performed it with a three-digit grasp (5). Based on these previous findings, we believed that the subject’s maximum clench strength and the total length of…

    With thorough analysis of the results, the null hypothesis has been proven correct as there is no significant difference in the mean maximal pulse rate change of subjects who could do fewer than 20 push-ups and subjects who could do 20 or more push-ups. The P value for the t-test of the heart rate changes of students who completed less or over 20 push – ups was over 0.05. The results indicated that the mean value were very similar, showing a difference of only 0.9383 (refer to Appendix for the raw mean value results). These figures are based on the study of all 149 entries of data which include both males and females.…

    The experiment consisted of 1,000 Pennsylvania State University students, all from ages 18-21 and all in the process of receiving an undergraduate degree from the institution. The students are split with about 500 male and 500 female, and of similar ethnic backgrounds. Each group(experimental and control) had about 500 students with equal amount of men and women, and ethnic backgrounds to make to the two groups as similar as possible. This helped to eliminate confounding variables which could have impacted the experiment's results. The EMG(or electromyography) and the AD Instruments Powerlab system to see the data, was used to measure the amount of electrical activity produced by skeletal muscles, and the electrodes were placed on parts of the ab muscles on the stomach after being rubbed by alcohol swabs. The experiment was over the course of three days, the first day was used to obtain a baseline for all of the participants, which required the…

    In this study, the amount of time it took for muscles to become fatigue was investigated. Muscle fatigue is the temporary decline in a muscle’s ability to generate force. It is usually caused by rigorous exercise. Students were instructed to squeeze a tennis ball as fast as they could for 4 periods of time. A period consisted of 30 seconds. Students were allowed to rest for a short amount of time between each period, but as each passed, the rest amount got shorter. The stopwatch on a cell phone was used to time them. There is really no such thing as a “dominant” hand so students did the experiment with both their left and right. (need results and hypothesis)…
