clavicles 8-1 Bloom's Taxonomy: Knowledge 98) The radius and ulna are bound to each other by a(n) ________ ligament. interosseous 8-2 Bloom's Taxonomy: Knowledge 99) The trochlea is located on the ________. humerus 8-2 Bloom's Taxonomy: Knowledge 100) The bones of the palm are called ________ bones. metacarpal 8-2 Bloom's Taxonomy: Knowledge 101) The bones of the forearm, or ________, consist of the radius and ulna. antebrachium 8-2 Bloom's Taxonomy: Comprehension 102) Match the term with its key characteristics. 1. lunate A) pea-shaped 2. triquetrum B) comma-shaped 3. pisiform C) pyramid-shaped 1-B; 2-C; 3-A
8-2 Bloom's Taxonomy: Knowledge 103) The two pubic bones join medially at the ________. pubic symphysis 8-3 Bloom's Taxonomy: Knowledge 104) The pelvic ________ is bordered by the coccyx, the ischial tuberosities, and the inferior border of the pubic symphysis. outlet 8-3 Bloom's Taxonomy: Comprehension 105) The space enclosed by the true pelvis is called the ________. pelvic inlet (or pelvic cavity) 8-3 Bloom's Taxonomy: Knowledge 106) The medial malleolus is located on the ________ bone. tibia 8-4 Bloom's Taxonomy: Knowledge 107) The ligament that surrounds the ________ attaches to the tibial tuberosity. patella 8-4 Bloom's Taxonomy: Knowledge 108) A ligament attaches the acetabulum to the femur at the ________, a small pit in the center of the femoral head. fovea capitis 8-4 Bloom's Taxonomy: Knowledge Essay Questions 109) Why is it necessary for the bones of the pelvic girdle to be more massive than the bones of the pectoral girdle? The pelvic girdle must withstand the load of bearing and moving the entire body whereas the pectoral girdle only supports the upper limbs. 8-3 Bloom's Taxonomy: Comprehension 110) What is the distinction between the false pelvis and the true pelvis?
The true pelvis encloses the pelvic cavity and its superior limit is a line that extends from either side of the base of the sacrum, along the arcuate line and pectineal line to the pubic symphysis. The false pelvis consists of the expanded, bladelike portions of each ilium superior to the pelvic brim. 8-3 Bloom's Taxonomy: Comprehension 111) Describe the pelvic adaptations to childbearing in the female. These include: an enlarged pelvic outlet, a broader pubic angle, less curvature on the sacrum and coccyx, wider and more circular pelvic inlet, a relatively broad pelvis that does not extend as far superiorly, and ilia that project farther laterally, but do not extend as far superior to the sacrum. 8-3 Bloom's Taxonomy: Application 112) Describe how the arches of the foot assist in weight distribution. The arches absorb shock as weight distribution shifts during movements. The longitudinal arch absorbs most of the shock of steps, while the transverse arch distributes the weight evenly. 8-4 Bloom's Taxonomy: Comprehension 113) To settle a bet, you need to measure the length of your lower limb (head of femur to distal condyle of tibia). What landmarks would you use to make the measurement? You could feel the inferior iliac notch, which is at the same level as the head of the femur. You could feel the medial malleolus of the tibia at the ankle.
