The peak velocity of elbow joints during hair-combing activities (study)

If you comb your hair, you may have found yourself wondering how fast (in metres per second) your elbow moves as you do so. In which case, help is at hand – in the form of a recent paper published in the American Institute of Physics (AIP) Conference Proceedings.

A research team from Kolej Poly-Tech MARA in Kuala Lumpur, found, by experiment, that it tends to be around 0.4 – 0.6 m/s.
