How strong is the femur?
The femur is the strongest and thickest bone in the body. It can take about 600 LBS of vertical force before it breaks. That pretty much means that if you set it up so it was horizontal, with a space in between the things holding it up, and put 600 pounds on it, it would snap. That's strong.

Yes the femur can be considered an organ. Think of it this way, the definition of a tissue is a group of functionally related cells and their extracellular material (or interc…ellular products) which in turn together have a common function. The definition of an organ is a group of different tissues which together have a common function. And of course an organ system is many different organs working together for a common function (to support the organism) Bone tissue, or osseous tissue is the major component of the skeletal system. However, its not the only tissue that resides within the skeletal system. Although the femur is primarily composed of bone tissue, it is not the only tissue type found within it. For example, periosteum (dense irregular connective tissue) and also the medullary canal (filled with adipose, again, spongy or cancellous bone (found mainly in the epiphysis sections) contains myeloid connective tissue. Coming back to the definition stated above, yes the femur is composed of many different tissues, which have a common function. The skeletal system is made up of all the bones in the body. This is because why? thinking again back to the above definition, an organ system is made of different organs which have a common function, and those different organs are different bones. So yes, the femur can be considered an organ :)
The femur allows you to walk, jump, kick, swim, and do other activities that involve your leg. The femur is a bone in the leg. It helps to give the leg structure and to protec…t what's underneath it, like blood vessels.
You must mean "femur," which is "the longest and thickest bone of the human skeleton; extends from the pelvis to the knee" (Word Web); apparently some folks choose to sp…ell it "femure" but that's not in the dictionary.
No in fact your sternum is rather weak and easily broken. Usually resulting in death. No in fact your sternum is rather weak and easily broken. Usually resulting in… death.
The femur protects the deep femoral artery as well as the femoral nerve.
Your thigh bone, the longest bone in your body
The femur makes up about 1/4 of a person's overall height and... The femur is the strongest bone in the body... Also the femur has the patella at the bottom and the pelv…is at the top of it.
Answer Between your knee and hip. It is also the longest bone in you body. By Jens Radda It is the top bone in the leg. femurs are the biggest bones in the bo…dy which are in your leg and also in Egypt they needed big femurs to make pyramids and stuff # A BONE IN THE BODY
the femur is the thighbone & there is only 1 per thigh. the lower leg has 2 bones: the tibia & the fibula. answer your looking for is right or left depending on the view of th…e femur.
A fracture is a disruption in the structure of a bone. For example a crack or a break in a bone. A femur fracture is therefor a crack or break in the femur.
The femur helps support the weight of your body, and forms an attachment for the thigh and knee joint to move.
The femur, thigh bone, is the longest bone in the body. What the femur does is allows movement to be made in the legs. This makes running, walking, standing, skipping, and jum…ping possible.
No, that is actually a common mistake people make. You never really mix it up unless your are actually researching the human body. The femur is actually super narrow, that's w…hat they get mixed up.
Its unclear what you mean by "crest". The human femur has over 25 named aspects referring to different areas, ridges, sides,etc. of the bone. Some of these are where the… bone connects to another bone, others are places where muscles attach. The names are importent so doctors and scientists can talk about all these parts of the bone and know what one another is referring to. For example, if a doctor says, "there is a fracture of the medial epicondyle of the patient's femur," other doctors can know what he's talking about. One named aspect of the femur is the intertrocanteric crest which bridges the greater and lesser trochanters on the proximal posterior side of the femur and acts as the attachment site for the quadratus femoris muscle.
