What is the smallist bone in the human body?
The smallest of all the bones in the human body is the stapes, aka stirrup. It is one of the three auditory ossicles of the middle ear. The stapes is about 3.3 millimeters in length and weighs 1.98 to 4.3 mg.

The largest bone in the human body is the femur or thigh (your upper leg). Femur, or your thigh bone, is the longest and the strongest bone in your body.
The femur is the longest bone in the human body and is located in the thigh(upper leg). In adults it can reach a length of over 19 inches (0.5 m).
The temporal bone, which makes up part of your skull, is the strongest bone in the human body. Many think it's the femur, but the femur is the biggest and longest bone, but not the strongest..
The weakest bone in the human body is...wait for it... your heel because it saves you from falling and does some other stuff but not very important stuff like saving a life.
The femur is the longest and strongest bone in the body. It islocated in your thigh.
There are vital body point wherein you should protect from any hit or injury. These bones can be easily damaged if not well protected. For the list, check the link below.
in mass is is the skull but in length it is the spine -The skull is actually composed of 22 individual bones that are fused; the spine of 24 individual vertebrae. The femur (thigh bone) is the heaviest and longest individual bone in the human body.
The stapes is the third bone of the three ossicles in the middle ear. The stapes is a stirrup-shaped bone, and the smallest in the human body.
even though most people think it is the spine it is the femur (some people call it the upper leg bone, near the pelvis)
The strongest, hardest and largest bone in the human body is the femur, or your thigh bone.
The number of bones in the human body will depend on which bookyour reading it will say 206 or 212 bones. 212 bones in the body iscorrect if you count the ossicles which are 3 small bones in eachear.
The 3 ossicles are "little bones" found in the middle ear. They arethe smallest bones in the human body, and each one has its ownname: . tympanic side = malleus orhammer . middle = incus oranvil . oval window side = stapesor stirrup The smallest bone is Stirrup
One could think it would be the "head bone" ... protecting the brain should be paramount as it controls all our body functions and thought processes.
In human body bones are made up of mainly Calcium salt, that is Calcium Hydroxyapatite and organic Very strong fibers called Collagen fibers. Together they give strength and flexibility to bones. Bones are porous so that there weight should become less.
Not being an osteopath i will have to guess at the femur; or more precisely the head of the femur 8the hip joint). I guess this because it has to withstand the greatest stresses. (Teeth are even harder!)

Maybe more then 250 so yeah answers your question. ( Full Answer )
Frontal, Parietal,Occipital, Temporal bone, Spenoid, Xiphisternum, Sternum, pelvic bones are some of the examples of flat bones.
The biggest single bone in a human is the femur which is the bone in the thigh. The next biggest is the tibia, the shin bone. And the third biggest is the ilium which is the wing of the pelvis.
The smallest bone in the our body is the stirrup bone which is present in the ear.
The anvil is the smallest and the Stapes is the 2nd smallest Both are in the ear.
The ten major bones in the human body are: the cranium (skull), mandible (lower jaw), vertebral column (spine), sternum (breast bone), ribs, pelvic girdle (pelvis), femurs, patella (knee cap), fibulae (upper part of lower arm) and phalanges (fingers and toes).
A distribution of bones in different body parts is as follows:. 28 skull bones (14 facial, 8 cranial and 6 ear bones) . Hyoid bone of the neck (horseshoe-shaped) . 26 vertebrae (7 cervical, 12 thoracic, 5 lumbar, sacrum made from 5 fused vertebrae and coccyx made from 3 fused vertebrae) . 24 rib…s, sternum or breastbone, shoulder girdle (2 clavicles and 2 scapulae) . 2 in arms (humerus), 4 in forearms (2 radius, 2 ulna) . 54 in the hands (carpus, metacarpus and digits) . 2 Hip bones . 2 in thighs (femur) . 6 in the legs (2 patella, 2 tibia and 2 fibula) . 52 in the feet (tarsus, metatarsus and digits) ( Full Answer )
The short bones are compact bones, spongy bones, femur bones and finally spinal cord. Thanks... hope you find this useful! :) correct answer: the backbone(vertebral column)is not the longest bone in the body.The backbone is actually 33 small bones joined.They protect the spinal cord.The longest… bone in the skeleton is found in the thigh and the smallest is found in the ear. ( Full Answer )
still 206 but a bay has 300 and as they grow up it turns into 206 because they fuse together.
The bones of the skeletal system in the human body are like the girders of a skyscraper. They support the weight. Also, the marrow of the bones produces red blood cells for the circulatory system.
The biggest bones in the human body are the femurs which are located in the thigh.You could also call them the thighbones.
Yes it can, either from an external or internal approach. Only if it's sharp enough like a compound fracture.
The body consists of long bones, flat bones, irregular bones, shortbones and sesmoid bones. The short bones include bones in the wristand foot.
The adult human body has 206 bones.. However a baby has more bones, because for example the skull is in two parts and then gradually kind of like sticks together, I am unsure of how many bones a baby has.. Hope I helped!.
No. . Bones are calcium-based and are part of the skeletalsystem. . Hair is protein-based and are part of the integumentary system.Hair is made of a special type of protein known as keratin. It isthe same material that makes your finger and toe nails.
In the elbow. It is the end of the "humerus", which is where the phrase "funny bone" comes from, because of the similarity to "humorous".
If you need any three bones in the human body the I would say the Tibia, Fibia and skull.neck bone
The longest bone in our body is femur. The thigh bone. It measureabout 52 centimeters.
The largest bone in the body is the femur. It is the bone in the upper section of your leg (thigh or upper hind limb), from your hip to knee. It is classified as a long bone.
270 at birth and as time goes on the number declines and then leaves the adult body with a number of 206 bones.
without bones you would a puddle on the ground they provide the stucture of your body and as levers for your muscles to move against even if you dont include that any hit you your body would be a massive injury to your organs becuase you dont have a rib cage to protect them.
he femur is the thigh bone in the human body. In humans, it is the longest, hardest and strongest bone. The femur is said to be harder than concrete. The average human femur in adults is 48 centimeters (19 in) in length and 2.34 cm (0.92 in) in diameter and managed to support and withstand up to 30 …times the weight of an adult. It forms part of the hip (at the acetabulum) and part of the knee. The word femur is Latin for thigh. It is impressive that evolution could make the femur bone almost harder than concrete. It has probably taken millions of years of evolution for the femur to evolve into the super strong bone that is today. The femur is a critical building block that the rest of our relatively soft body relies on. ( Full Answer )
a bone that's marrow that's really easy so whoever asked this shame on you i'm better than you oh yeah
The femur is the longest, and largest, bone in the human body - also known as the thigh bone.
We aren't born with kneecap's and i little bit of hollow bone in our skull. That is why baby's can't walk!
There is no short bones in the human body, because there are so many tiny bones wich make up to one big bone.
There are 206 bones in an adult human who has not had severeinjuries or amputations. There are more bones in juveniles andinfants.
I think the teporal bone is located in your head where the soft part of the side of your head is located. Hope it makes since...Really i do.
Joints. The joints connect the bones into place, so it is your bones that hurt when you get bad joints in old age.
Skull, collarbone(clavical), sterum(breast bone), shoulder blade, rib cage, humerus, radius and ulna(the forearm), pelvis (hip bone), pubic bone, scrotum, femur, tibia and fibula(the lower half of the leg) NOTE: Not all bones were included.
Well, ONE answer would be- On the inside. However, bones are everywhere in the human body from the top of your head to the bottom of your feet.
Mainly for structural support, but also for storage of calcium, production of red blood cells and protection (the ribs and skull)
No. When you are born, you have 300 bones. But as you grow, some of these bones fuse together, leaving you with 206 bones. The stage of bone fusion helps coroners and archaeologists determine the age of skeletons.
The longest bone in the human body is the femur . The femur is also the heaviest and strongest bone in the body.
the three smallest bones are in your ear. they are about as big asa grain of rice! ==== The malleus, incus, and stapes ... "hammer", "anvil", and"stirrup".
