The function of cartilage in the bronchus is to hold the soft  tissue open so that air may pass through. The cartilage in the  bronchus are C-shaped rings.
The skeletal system has a few important jobs. One is to keep us  from becoming blobs of human tissue similar to jellyfish but  without the water. The other is to protect vital organs such as our  brains, heart, lungs, liver. But they have another role which is to  create a form on which...
extensor digitorum, extensor indicis, extensor digiti minimi,  flexor digitorum superficialis, and the flexor digitorum profundus.  There are also extrinsic muscles that work only in the thumb; these  include the flexor pollicis longus, extensor pollicis longus,  extensor pollicis brevis, and...

Fibrous connective tissues are found in cartilage, ligaments, and tendons.

first off the nature of shapes and structures (honey comb like) reduces weight without much of a decrease in strength.   next hydroxylapatite is the major component of bone and gives it it's compressive strength.   and finally there is another side the the strength of bone. collagen helps...

The ankle is primarily made of three bones. The tibia, the fibula,  and the talus. The protrusions seen or felt on the ankle are all  different parts of these three bones.
  The weightless environment of space results in a loss of muscular strength, volume and bone density. This leads to reduced spinal cord excitability, meaning a loss of locomotor function in the legs.
Yes. The carpals (wrist) is further away from the point of  attachment of the arm to the body. The radius is closer.
hyaline cartilage is located in between bones
