Your bones act as levers via which you are able to run and move, and the muscles ideally attach to the bones as drivers, engines and enacters of the motion achieved in those levers.

Muscles pull on bones to create body movements. The bones act as rigid levers and the muscles utilize their rigidity to enable movement by contracting and relaxing.

No. Bones help keep our body the right shape, and are moved by muscles, but muscles use the protein from our food as the energy to move them.

Bones provide support, protection and mineral storage. Bones also act as levers and work with the muscles to allow us to move. Lastly, red bone marrow, found in the ends of the long bones, produces blood cells and platelets.

No. The bones of the human body, as well as many organisms, act as levers for the muscles. The muscles pull on the bones in the body creating movement. Without these levers no movement would be possible and the person would be unable to survive, they would just be a mass of tissue

Essentially bones are articulated levers joined to each other by ligamets. The tendons provide structure and direction while muscles provide the power to activate the levers

The skeletal system includes the bones that are moved by the muscles. The muscles are connected or attached to the bones by tendons. The muscles pull on the bones, approximating certain attachments & many times causing the bones to act like levers.

There are a number of body parts that act as the fulcrums of levers. The most obvious ones are the elbow and knee joints.

The Incus, Malleus and Stapes are the bones of the middle ear. They are the smallest bones in the human body. The three bones are connected by hinges and are levers that carry the vibrations collected from the ear drum to the middle ear
