Pad Mats

May 13th, 2014

why is it better to land on a padded mat than to land on grass?

is it because of there is less friction on the grass to reduce the speed and stop the object?

The reason why a padded mat is better is because it will stop you more slowly .. the time taken to compress the mat being longer than the likely time to stop on grass .. but this does depend on how 'soft' the soil is below the grass.
Landings that take longer to stop you involve a smaller rate of deceleration which requires a smaller force (in accordance with Newton law 2 .. F = m x a)

A further benefit might be that a soft mat takes the shape of your body more readily than the ground does .. this means the stopping force, apart from being reduced .. is also spread over a greater body area which reduces the pressure on you from the force.
