Unformatted text preview: Why would it be referred to as temporal summation? Why is the force generated by a twitch so much smaller than that generated during tetany? 6. What makes fast-twitch motor units stronger than slow twitch motor units? 7. Describe the reflex arcs provided by muscle spindles and Golgi tendon organs. 8. What is oxygen debt in muscles and how is it resolved? 9. Describe the factors that lead to muscle fatigue. Why must the cause of muscle fatigue not be the depletion of ATP? 10. Compare the force-generating capacities and maximal shortening velocities of hypothetical muscles consisting of (1) one cell with 50 sarcomeres in series vs. (2) two cells in parallel with 25 sarcomeres in series each....
