CH 13A Skeletal System & Joint Movement

  1. Five Classification of Bones
    1. ____ bone: Bones are longer than they are wide, examples are humerus, radius, ulna, femur, tibia and fibula.
    2. ____ bone: Small & cuboidal, contain multiple articulating surfaces, such as carpals and tarsals
    3. ____ bone: Possess a broad, flat surface for muscle attachment or protection of underlying organs such sternum, ribs, scapula and certain skull bones
    4. ____ bone: catch-all category for bones that don't fit in the other ones. Example are certain cranial bones, facial bones, vertebrae and the hyoid bone
    5. ____ bone: Small, round bones that are embedded in certain tendons, often found in the hands and feet. Largest is the Patella (kneecap)
    • 1. Long
    • 2. Short
    • 3. Flat
    • 4. Irregular
    • 5. Sesamoid
  2. A bone used as a rod that is moved by use of a falcrum (joint) to be set in motion with two forces that must act on it; 1. Resistance (weight of body and/or an object) 2. Effort (muscular contraction) There are three Classifications.
    What is a Lever?
  3. Three Classifications of Levers

    1. ____ ____ Lever: resembles a seesaw. The fulcrum (joint) is positioned between effort and resistance. Least common in the body. Example is cranium sitting on top of a vertebrae Force teeters the weight up and down on the Falcrum.
    2. ____ ____ Lever: functions as would a wheel barrow. The fulcrum (joint) is at one end, the resistance is in the middle and the force is at the opposite end. Example is rising of the toes. (Fulcrum - wheel, Weight - container, Force - handles)
    3. ____ ____ Lever: resembles sweeping with a broom. The fulcrum (joint) is at one end, Effort is located in the central portion and the resistance is at the opposite end. This is most common type of lever. Example is flexing the elbow. (Fulcrum - base, Force-shaft, Weight-bristles)
    • 1. Class One
