Starter blocks decrease the amount of time it takes the athletes to reach their maximum speed by:

1. Giving the athlete a firm surface to push off from and

2. Allowing the athlete to position themselves so that they can gain speed as quickly as possible from the starting position.

I have a project and i don't know what independent or dependent means

When conducting an experiment, a researcher usually has a dependent and independent variable. The independent variable is the variable that can be changed or manipulated (think of it as a cause). The dependent variable is the variable that depends on the independent variable (think effect).

For example, if you wanted to test whether practice improves an athlete's performance (lets say number of touchdowns):
  • Practicing (or not) is what you can manipulate. It is the independent variable.
  • Number of touchdowns is the dependent variable. The results depend on whether or not the athlete practiced.

When placing Starting blocks on a running track, how far from the starter line should they be?

You should set the starter block so that it is about 2 or your own foot lengths away from the start line. This is so that you are not in-front of the start line before the race has started.

Fat percentage question

Some body fat percentage levels are more culturally valued than others, and some are related to better health or improved athletic performance.
