I think this would go here... human & animal anatomy...

Postby LaceFlowerCookies » Wed Jan 17, 2007 10:28 pm

Hey I have a few Q's about the anatomy of Human and Animals... I'm fairly sure that I know all of the answers, but I figured that I'd ask you guys. :)



1: The largest organ in the human body is the __

2: How many bones does an adult human skeleton have?

3: Skeleton comes from the Greek word meaning __

4: Red bone marrow _______

5: The joints in your leg and arm are examples of what type of joint?

6: What is a sprain?

7: What are the purposes for bones?

8: What are the types of muscles?

9: What are the functions of muscles?

10: The bones of the skull are examples of what type of joint?

11: All joints are held together by strong elastic tissue called _______.

12: Some animals have skeletons on the outside of their bodies. This kind

13: Connective tissues connect muscles to bones. These are called

14: Human skin contains ______ glands to help us cool off.

15: The soft tissue inside some of the bones is called: __

16: The elbow is an example of which kind of joint?

17: The joint between the shoulder and upper arm is an example of which

18: the bones of the hip are an exmple of which kind of joint?

---

I'm thinking that the answers are:

1. skin

2. 217 ???

3. dried body

4. ? produces the body's blood cells? ?

5. Gliding

6. when a ligament is stretched too far

7. bones produce blood cells and also store minerals and other materials that your body needs; bones provide shape to our body; protect our soft and delicate, internal organs.

8. skeletal muscles, smooth muscles and cardiac muscles

9. Skeletal muscles provide the force that move your bones; smooth muscles found in your digestive tract and in your blood vessels control many kinds of movements in your body, such as the digestive process; and cardiac muscles found in your heart contract repeatedly throughout your life.

10. immovable

11. connective tissue

12. exoskeleton

13. tendons

14. sweat

15. marrow

16. hinge

17. ball and socket

18. ball and socket


:wink: Thanks again,

2, is wrong
5 is vague but I think there's a better answer than gliding.

i was also looking at that 2. but the answer probably depends on which anatomy book you have: some include teeth, some don't. Some count fused bones as one, others as more... It's a bit relative. If i remember correctly Grey says 208+32 teeth. But it depends..

might want to look at synarthroses and diarthroses and pisiform bones.

The largest organ (((IN))) the body is the liver....don't know if you have a tricky teacher or not.

Ok... so you are saying that the largest ORGAN BODY is the liver, or the largest organ IN THE BODY is the liver? :?


Also, thanks everyone! :)

1 - Yup, all depends on whether "in" means something tricky...

5 - There are a couple of different types, so maybe something more generic is expected. Or your source has a different definition of "gliding."

8 - If it's humans AND animals, there's another type of muscle.

9 - You "cardiac" answer isn't really answering the question.

11 - Too generic - this is obviously looking for a particular form of connective tissue.

18 - I don't think it's referring to the hip-thigh joint, but rather the other bones of the hip. No way to be sure, though.

I believe that the reason that you've gotten limited responses is that many people pass by pure homework problems after glancing at the post, and since your answers were down off-screen on the post, many didn't realize that you had done your work and were looking for some confirmation.
