This may seem like an easy question for a physics typeto answer: With what force does a rock that weighs 10 N strike the ground if dropped from a rest position10 m high? In fact, the question cannot be answeredunless you have more information. What information,and why?
BSCI201: Anatomy &Physiology Chapter 4 (Tissues) Notes- Part 2 by Mehrnaz Ighani . Connective tissue (CT): the most abundant and widely distributed of primary tissues Major functions: binding and support, protecting, insulating, storing reserve fuel, and transporting substances 4 main classes: 1. Connective tissue proper 2. Cartilage 3. Blood 4. Bone . Common characteristics of CT: 1. All have common embryonic origin: all arise from mesenchyme tissue as their tissue of origin 2. Have varying degrees of vascularity (cartilage is avascular but bone is vascularized) 3. Cells are suspended/ embedded in extracellular matrix (ECM) . ECM supports cells so they can bear weight and withstand tension . All connective tissues
