Why is the main bronchus made up of rings of cartilage?
There are actually several different kinds of cartilage in the body, but the tracheal rings are the hardest (softer cartilage is found in bendy things like your ears and nose). They're there so your windpipe doesn't collapse in on itself, kind of like a hula hoop keeping a large trash bag open.
The right main bronchus is wider, shorter, and more vertical than the left. The left main bronchus is smaller in caliber,but 5 cm longer than the left bronchus.
The right main bronchus, about 2.5 cm in length, is shorter, wider, and more nearly vertical than the left. Because it is in almost a direct line with the trachea--> foreign objects traversing the trachea are more likely to enter the right main bronchus.
A bronchus is a main branch of the airway located below the trachea and above the bronchioles.
The trachea and main bronchus bring air to the lungs. The main bronchus splits to a right and left bronchi.
The branches of trachea include: the right main bronchus and the left main bronchus. The trachea begins immediately below the larynx.
The right main bronchus is wider, shorter, and more vertical than the left main bronchus, and it enters the right lung at roughly the level of the fifth thoracic vertebra. In contrast, the left main bronchus is smaller in size, but longer in length than the right main bronchus. The left main bronchus enters the root of the left lung opposite to the sixth thoracic vertebra, passes underneath the aortic arch.
Right or Left main stem bronchus is for the carina and this is a bifurcation that sends air to both lungs. Sierra Q
main bronchi is known as primary bronchi. It is branch of bronchus.
What is the smallest in diameter a segmental bronchus the trachea the right main bronchus a lobar bron?
The smallest is a segmental bronchus. The trachea is the largest and branches into the main (left and right) bronchi which then branch several times before branching into lobar bronchi and then segmental bronchi. Each lung is made up of lobes (generally the left lung has 2 lobes and the right has 3) and the lobes are comprised of segments.
The trachea divides into a right and left main bronchus. Each major bronchus then subdivides into smaller airway passages referred to as bronchi. As the airway passages make their way out to the lung tissue, the passages become smaller and are referred to as bronchioles. Eventually the bronchioles terminate into small collections of air sacs known as alveoli, which is where the actual exchange of CO2 and Oxygen occur. The above answer is partly correct… Read More
The right main bronchus
BRONCHUS is either of the two main branches of the trachea. It is also know as BRONCHI or BRONCHIOLE TUBE. I hope that helped you. ;) :) B-) :p
cartilage is a tissue made of chondroblasts. its main function is to provide support and flexibility to the vertebrate body. it protects the bones from wear and tear. it is found in the tip of the nose, ear pinna, rings of wind pipe(trachea), lower ends of ribs, etc.
The main purpose of cartilage is to keep your bones from rubbing fragments off of each other.

well the main difference is that a horses spine is made of bone while a sharks is made of cartilage.
The Hilum is where the main bronchus enter the lungs.
It has four main rings made up of dust particles
Neptune has 6 rings in all, and 3 main ones. So, 3 faint rings, and 3 main rings.
Frodo was the main protagonist in Lord of the Rings.
You may think Saturn is the only planet with rings. It is not! Jupiter has rings, too. They aren't as easy to see as Saturn's, but they ARE there. Saturns rings are made of ice and are very bright. Jupiter's rings are dark. They are made of tiny pieces of dust. Jupiter's rings were discovered by the Voyager Spacecraft in 1979. The Galileo spacecraft helped us figure out how Jupiter's rings are made. Meteors that… Read More
The right and left main bronchus (which supply air to the right and left lung).
The bronchi are the two main branches leading into the lungs. Each one is called a bronchus.
The main branches from the trachea are the bronchi (bronchus is a singular one). These also lead to bronchioles, which lead to aveoli in the lungs.
n. bronchus, any of the main air passages of the lungs (Anatomy)
water, fats, minerals
it has 4 rings. the halo, main, and 2 gossamer rings.
one big! one ---------------- Saturn has Four main groups of rings and three smaller groups of rings. These groups are separated by gaps, called divisions. These 7 ring groups are made up of thousands of smaller rings. The exact number is not known.
Fibrocartilage is found in intervertebral discs, in menisci of joints, and often occurs where tendon and ligament are joined to bones. It's main function is to reduce friction between the joints Hyaline cartilage is found lining articular surfaces, and in the nasal septum, tracheal rings, coastal cartilages, and the epiphyseal cartilage of growing bone. It has great tensile strength and provides flexible support.
The rib cartilage is called the costal cartilage and it has 2 main purposes. It makes the walls of the thorax more elastic and it serves to prolong the ribs forward.
the different between cartilage and ligaments, cartilage is basically hold the body shape such as ear with no bone. but ligaments they are joins bones to bones.
Nostrils → Nasal Cavity → Pharynx → Larynx → Trachea → Main Bronchus → Lobar Bronchiole → Segmental Bronchus → Bronchiole → Terminal Bronchiole → Respiratory Bronchiole → Alveolar Duct → Atrium → Alveolus
Frodo is the main character in The Lord of the Rings. ---- Tolkien also called Sam Gamgee the "chief hero". Frodo of course is the main character in Lord of the Rings, the fate of all Middle Earth rests on his shoulders.
Hyaline cartilage. elastic cartilage, and fibrocartilage are all similar in that they are mostly made of collagen proteins with some additional compounds. The difference is in the way they are arranged. Hyaline cartilage consists of rounded collagen which makes it hard and like marble. It is usually founf in movable joints. Elastic cartilage is made of elastin fibers and collagen in a wavy pattern that makes it flexible like rubber. It is found in your… Read More
Yes 3 main rings but< there are 4 actual rings Yes. Very thin and faint, but present.
Yes, it does.
about 7 of them
Neptune has five main rings surrounding it. The rings of Neptune appear to be a reddish color. they were first discovered in 1984.
Saturn has four main groups of rings and three fainter, narrower groups. These groups are separated by small gaps called divisions. Close up views of Saturn's rings by the Voyager spacecrafts showed that seven rings were actually made up of thousands of smaller ones. The exact number, however, is not known.
To produce cartilage needed for bone growth
It has the main part's of a adult skeleton, but a few bones are missing becuase the baby doesn't need them yet. Also the cranium of the baby's skull made of cartilage.
Saturn has four main groups of rings and three fainter, narrower ring groups. These groups are separated by gaps called divisions. Close up views of Saturn's rings by the Voyager spacecrafts, which flew by them in 1980 and 1981, showed that these seven ring groups are made up of thousands of smaller rings. The exact number is not known.
There are many characters in The Lord of the Rings. Frodo Baggins is arguably the main character.
The main character in Lord of the Rings was named Frodo.
it depends on if you mean the books or not, some of the main women in The Lord of the Rings are: Arwen Eowyn Galadriel Elwing Rosie Goldberry
Jupiter has a faint ring system comprised of three main rings: an inner torus, known as the halo, a relatively bright main ring, and an outer gossamer ring. You cannot see the rings of Jupiter with the naked Eye. They are too thin. Jupiter has a set of faint rings.
Saturn has three main rings. You need a telescope, but they are visible in a small telescope.
Yes, the rings orbit in a plane roughly the same as Saturn's equator. (Some of the outer rings are not related to the main rings and their orbits are shaped by the associated Saturnian moons.)
the bronchioles are a part of bronchus and hence has the same function- i.e. to transport air from the nostrils(buccal cavity) to the lungs and vice-versa...
