Calculate the physiological cross-sectional area for the gastrocnemius specimen in the previous worked example for pennation angles of 0° and 30° and comment on how the physiological cross-sectional area is related to pennation angle.
Thus, as the pennation angle increases the physiological cross-sectional area decreases according to the cosine function.
