    basic unit of matter
  11. Please explain chemical bonding.
    • Bonds formed to make atoms more stable
    • -considered stable when outer energy level is "full" (maximum number of electrons in the outer shell)
  12. What is homeostasis and chemical balance within our own body
    • Homeostasis
    • -relative uniformity of the normal body's enviroment
    • Chemical Balance
  13. Explain ATP

    • -
  14. Please explain the movement of substances through the cell
    membrane and what they are called and how they work.
    • Primary Passive Transport Process

    • -the process by which substances scatter themselces evenly throughout an available space
    • ---osmosis

    • ----some solutes move across a selectively permeable membrane by diffusion while others do not
    • -Filtration

    • no blistering
    • epidermis may peel in 1-3 days
    • Second Degree
    • always causes injury to the upper layer of the dermis
    • damage sweat glands, hair follicles, and sebaceous glands
    • Third Degree
    • Complete destruction of the epidermis 
    • tissue death and destruction of the muscles

    explain what makes them called this.
    • True ribs
    • -upper 7 
    • -attach to sternum directly by costal cartilages
    • False ribs
    • -lower 5 pairs
    • -first 3 attach by costal cartilage, the last 2 connect to the cartilage from the first 3
    • free floating ribs
    • -does not attach to the cartilage or sternum
  24. Where is red and yellow bone marrow made?
    • Red
    • -in the epiphysis
    • Yellow
    • -in the medullary cavity
  25. What is the largest bone of the body?
  26. What other name is the growth plate called and why is it not
    good if a child breaks the bone at the growth plate?
    • epiphyseal plate
    • because it could cause the bone to not grow properly therefore causing it to not grow at the same rate of the other bones
  27. What type of joints do we have and explain each type and
    give an example.
    • Hinge-elbow, knee
    • Pivot-head
