  • This paper develops a mathematical model, or formula, of the 100m sprint, which accurately describes the relationship between time elapsed and distance covered in the race. From this are derived formulae for velocity and acceleration. There are four constants in these formulae. They are constant throughout a particular performance of a particular runner, and they vary from performance to performance and runner to runner. The constants have important significance, and describe the maximum speed… CONTINUE READING
