Anatomy and Physiology 1 Exam 1 Study Guide Terms and de nitions Homeostasis a condition of equilibrium or balance in the body s internal environment Homeostatic Imbalance a disturbance in homeostasis resulting in disease or even death Autopsy a post Morten exam of the body and dissection of its internal organs to con rm its cause of death and is performed by a Pathologist Planes Are imaginary at surfaces that are used to divide the body Body Cavities Spaces within the body that help protect separate and support internal organs Interstitial Fluid The uid that lls the narrow spaces between cells and tissues and directly affects the proper functioning of cells Receptor Provides input to the control center Homeostatic Imbalances When homeostasis is disrupted disease disorder and even death may result Example You can t survive extreme high or low temperatures Basic Anatomical Terminology Anatomical position is standing erect facing forward arms at sides palms facing forward Directional Terms They are used to precisely locate one part of the body relative to another Atomic Mass The number of protons neutrons and electrons Atomic Number equal to the number of protons and neutrons an atom contains I n An atom that has lost or gained an electron Molecule two or more atoms sharing electrons Compound A substance that can be broken down into two or more different elements Isotope An atom that has a different number of neutrons and same number of protons the breakdown gives off radiation Catalyst speeds up a reaction by lowering activation energy Radioactivity Releases energy to try to become more stable Electrolytes Salts that ionize dissolve in water to form body uids Sweat Chemical bond occurs when atoms are held together by forces of attraction Prions small pieces of proteins that get in the brain and create holes in it Ex mad cow disease Free Radical A particle with an odd number of electrons produced by metabolic reactions radiation and chemicals bind to everything Ex cancer if you have too many Serous Membranes Covers the organs of the trunk cavities and line the cavity Abdominal Cavity Serous Membrane The cover many abdominal organs Covalent Bond The sharing of electrons There are polar and nonpolar covalent bonds Cohesion Water attracting to each other Adhesion Ability to stick to other substances Activation Energy The energy used to get A and B closer together to get C source Enzyme An organic catalyst Vaporization When water turns form a liquid to a gas Mixture A combination of elements of compounds that are physically blended together but not bonded together Solution A substance dissolved in another substance Example salt in water Colloid Solution that has particles in it but aren t dissolved Example milk Suspension Solution that has particles but unless you keep shaking it the particles will not stay mixed Example juice Acid A proton donor H When hydrogen loses an electron it s left with a proton which H If you add acid to a base you get water which is a byproduct Base Hydroxyl donor or a proton acceptor Anything that increases concentration of hydroxide OH donor Anatomy study of the structure and shape of the body and its parts Physiology study of how the body and its parts work or function Histology looks at tissues Chemistry the study of science and structure and the interactions of matter Anatomy

skeletal nerve and muscle cells IEvery cell in our body has the same genetic material as every other cell in ourbody gtdifferentiation occurs before growth Reproduction organisms produced by offspring from their parents Growth We are always growing We start off small and get bigger Movement all organisms always move lntegumentary System skin hair nails sebaceous glands protection Skin if the largest organ in the body Muscular System muscles and tendons Produces movement protection and heat Skeletal System Cartilage bone marrow make blood cells ligaments bones sore phosphorus and they support and protect us Nervous System brain nerves spinal cord responds to stimuli Fastacting control system and responds to internal and external change Endocrine System thyroid pancreas pituitary

absorption into blood eiminates indigestible material Urinary System kidneys urethra bladder eiminates nitrogenous waste reguates water and electrolytes lters blood Reproductive System contains body membranes reduces friction by secreting serous uid Produces offspring Homeostasis Is the condition of equilibrium or balance in the body s internal environment and is regulated by the body s regulatory processes Examples of homeostatic set point Body temp 986 F blood pressure 10070 mmHg Blood pH 74 blood glucose 80100mgdl gtYour body never stays at set point because of external in uences 986 is normal body temp gtThe survival of our body cells is dependent on the precise regulation of the chemical composition of their surrounding uid The uid is gtEndocrine and nervous system maintain homeostasis Negative Feedback Loop Sense a change and activates a mechanism to it Sends things All metabolic reactions take place in the cells of the body Positive Feed back loop Moves things away

Example Photosynthesis light is the energy Activation Energy The energy used to get A and B closer together to get C source gtAll reactions have activation energy no matter if they re exergonic or endergonic energy gtBy lowering the activation energy enzymes make the reaction speed up gtEnergy is in all chemical reactions Valence Shells are not full and are unstable tend to gain lose or share electrons aow for bond formation which produces stable valence Inorganic vs Organic Compounds Organic usually ALWAYS contain carbon The only exception is carbon dioxide Inorganic usually lack carbon

closest to nucleus most strongly attracted Yes Atoms are stable when what When outermost shell is complete When are atoms stable A atoms are considered stable when their outermost orbital has 8 electrons The exception to the rule of eights is shell 1 which can only hold 2 electrons 5 Explain a similarity and difference between ionic and hydrogen bonds A A difference is that ionic bonds are an electromagnetic attraction between atoms and hydrogen bonds are an electromagnetic attractiveness to molecules A similarity is that they are both due to attractiveness of electromagnetic forces 6
