*British Nobel laureate
A.V. Hill invented 1938 the famous muscle mechanics equation which is commonly
known as the force-velocity relationship of muscle contraction. Hill’s equation is a constant power equation.
Hill’s equation can be presented in a form in which it shows Hill’s equation in
three different power components (paragraph 1.4). The first power component is
the power which is done against external force. Force multiplied by velocity is
power. Second is the power of friction. Third term has no velocity variable,
and therefore it can be concluded that it has no effect on the motion. It is
the power consumption of muscle’s operational ability. This is the beginning of
the solution of Hill’s equation. This book requires the ability of high school
mathematics and mechanics. With that ability it is possible to reach high level
of applied mechanics and mathematics which in this study is the level of Nobel
price. Although this book signifies high level of science, the special concern
has been taken to present the whole solution process as easy as possible. Most
important part of the iteration process is in hand written form. In hand
written form it is easy to differentiate from the other part of iteration
process, and furthermore it signifies that hand work is necessary to learn and
understand this kind of research process. The solution process consists of 73
equations, but they are in easy form, and most of them are closely related, and
therefore easy to understand. This book
could be (for instance) a study book for applied mechanics. The solution of
Hill’s equation in this book is founded on the research papers which are
published in scientific journals (paragraph 1.5). Because the contents of
articles are limited in these research papers, the iteration process of curve
fitting is missing. In this book the fitting processes of these papers are
referred as First fitting, and the total fitting processes have been presented
here, and they are referred as Second fitting. The fitting processes of First
Fitting have been continued in this book in order to obtain more accurate
values and to confirm the theory of muscle contraction. In Second fitting the
theory of muscle contraction in arm rotation movement (Maximum rotational
moment → Maximum power → Maximum velocity) was used to determine value of
Maximum power in three different manners.
These three Maximum power values must be the same value, and using this
fact the total solution of Hill’s equation has been proved to be true. The bold
letters have been written to differentiate the most important basic things.*
