Document Summary

Skeletal system- composed of bones, cartilages, and ligaments. Osseous tissue: connective tissue in which the matrix is hardened by deposition of calcium phosphate and other minerals mineralization/calcification: hardening process of osseous tissue. Long bones: rigid levers that are acted on by skeletal muscles to produce major body. Irregular bones: bones that do not fit any other categories. Vertebrae and tiny middle ear bones white osseous tissue. Compact (dense) bone: the long bone is composed of an outer shells of dense. The compact bone encloses the medullary: contains bone marrow. Spongy (cancellous) bone: located at the ends of the bone and is more loosely organized osseous tissue. Spongy bone always enclosed by compact bone. The principal features of a long bones are its shaft, called the diaphysis and epiphysis. Epiphysis: strengthens joint and provides added surface area for the. Articular cartilage: where one bone meets another is covered with articular attachment of the tendon cartilage.
