174 – a) shaft of the bone, b) end of the bone, c) between the shaft and end of the bone 7. Describe the location, composition, and function of the epiphyseal plate, articular cartilage, and periosteum. Ans: pg. 174 – epiphyseal plate: located in the metaphysis, composed of hyaline cartilage, is the growth plate; articular cartilage: covers the part of the epiphysis where the bone forms an articulation with another bone, composed of hyaline cartilage, reduces fiction and absorbs shock at freely movable joints; periosteum: surrounds the bone surface wherever it is not covered by articular cartilage, is a sheath of dense irregular connective tissue containing osteoblasts, functions to protect the bone, assists in fracture repair, nourishes bone tissue, and serve as an attachment point for ligaments and tendons 8. Why is osseous tissue considered a connective tissue?
Skeletal muscles are attached to bones, when the muscles contract and pull on bones you get movement of part of the body. Bone tissue is also important in storage of minerals such as calcium and phosphorus. These are distributed around the body when required to maintain the correct balance of minerals within the body as a whole. Within certain bones red bone marrow produces red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets which is a process called
Definition: Bones are rigid organs that constitute part of the endoskeleton of vertebrates. They support and protect the various organs of the body, produce red and white blood cells and store minerals. Bone tissue is a type of dense connective tissue. Bones come in a variety of shapes and have a complex internal and external structure, are lightweight yet strong and hard, and serve multiple functions. One of the types of tissue that makes up bone is the mineralized osseous tissue, also called bone tissue, that gives it rigidity and a coral-like three-dimensional internal structure.

The vertebral column is a structure of bone that is located in the back that encases the spinal cord from top to bottom in order to protect it from injury. The brain is protected by a series of bone,
* Stefan is referring to the two s-shaped bones. C. Which surface markings could Stefan use to distinguish the right humerus from the left? * By locating the anterior and posterior ends of the bone or locating the superior end of the bone. The proximal end has of the humerus has a rounded head that articulates with the glenoid cavity of the scapula. By locating it the he can tell if it is right or left when placed close to the midline of the body.
Unit 4222-232Move and position individuals in accordance with their plan of care (HSC 2028) 1.0 Understand anatomy and physiology in relation to moving and positioningindividuals 1.1 Outline the anatomy and physiology of the human body in relation to the importance of correct moving and positioning of individuals Bones and muscles are concerned with the movement of the body. The skeleton is a rigid framework that gives shape and support to the body and is jointed to permit movement. The vertebral column is the basis of the skeleton and consists of a series of bony rings united by inter-vertebral discs of cartilage. All bones give attachment to muscles, which are responsible for 50% of our body weight and also permit movement. Bones are moved at joints by contraction and relaxation of the muscles attached to them.
