Re: Fw: Dinosaurs and birds
It's actually worthwhile to sit down and work out the calculations.
See if you can find a quantitative result that will support higher
maximum speed when the stride frequency, stride rate, and force
imparted per stride are all at maximum and cannot rise. --MH
Whoops, that should read "stride frequency, stride rate, and force
imparted per stride are all at maximum and cannot rise without loss in
other two". Alternatively, try to show, quantitatively, some way in
which one of those factors could rise without loss in one or both of
the others for an animal that cannot actually fly.
