    • RV or residual volume
    • avg value: 1200 mL
  40. provides the body with the nutrients essential for health & the organs of this system ingest, digest & absorb food & eliminate the undigested remains as feces:
    digestive system
  41. chewing, churning:
    physical or mechanical digestion
  42. enzymatic hydrolysis:
    chemical digestion
  43. digested end products then pass through the epithelial cells lining the tract into the blood to be distributed to the body cells:
  44. 2 major groups of the digestive system:
    • alimentary canal or GI tract
    • accessory digestive organs
  45. consist of the mouth, pharynx, espophagus, stomach, small & large intestines and anus:
    alimentary canal

    large intestine
  60. provides a site for intestinal bacteria to manufacture some vitamins (B & K), which then absorbs into the bloodstream and reclaims most of the remaining water from undigested flood, thus conserving body water:

    reduces protein into amino acids
  80. what is the product of starch digestion:
  81. diaphragm down - contracted:
