dc.description.abstract This work aims to further the understanding of the trajectory and velocity profile of curved motion. Two competing theories, the two-thirds power law and the minimum jerk velocity profile, were tested. A set of two experiments was run that had the subjects generate curved motion. The first experiment had subjects move along a bounded oval and the second experiment had subjects move is a less constrained manner inducing a curved path. The study shows evidence for the expected effects of distance travel and allowable room for error. The evidence for the two movement profiles explaining the data is minimal.
