The focus is the power formulae relating periodic time in terrestrial locomotion and flight to mass and length. The periodic timing of limbs and wings oscillating comfortably in absolute co-ordination is viewed as the characteristic period tau 0 of a system in which the free, undamped oscillatory motion of a point mass m at a distance l from a fixed axis does work against two conservative forces. These forces are in the form of gravity g acting on the point mass and a spring of stiffness k… CONTINUE READING
