Measuring Vertical Jump using a Force Plate

A force plate is one method for measuring vertical jump height. It is usually reserved for use in scientific research. This is one of many methods available for measuring vertical jump height. See the discussion and list of available methods.

  1. from the flight time of the jump
  2. by applying the impulse–momentum theorem to the force–time curve, and
  3. by applying the work–energy theorem to the force-displacement curve.
