The force-velocity curve in passive whole muscle is asymmetric about zero velocity.


The force-velocity property of passive muscle was investigated to determine if a discontinuity of slope occurred at zero velocity. Isolated, unstimulated whole frog sartorius muscles were subjected to constant-velocity stretches and releases using a servo-controlled lever. The force due to damping (delta T) was calculated by subtracting the tension measured… (More)
