The lungs have a surface area equivalent to two tennis courts to facilitate gas exchange and get oxygen attached to haemoglobin for transport round the body. Next in line is the skin.
"The skin is often known as the largest organ of the human body. This applies to exterior surface, as it covers the body, appearing to have the largest surface area of all the organs. Moreover, it applies to weight, as it weighs more than any single internal organ, accounting for about 15 percent of body weight. For the average adult human, the skin has a surface area of between 1.5-2.0 square meters (8-10.8 sq.ft.)."
Surprisingly, the stomach does not play the greatest role in digestion. It would be the small intestine, which digests most starch and proteins.
Rugae of the stomach
The system in the body that absorbs nutrients is the digestive system. Within the digestive system is the small intestine. When food passes through the small intestine, villi, absorb all of the nutrients the body needs from the food. Villi are small fingerlike projections in the small intestine that increase surface area and "reach" out to the food and absorb its nutrients. So, to answer your question, villi that are in the small intestine within the digestive system absorb what nutrients our body needs.
to break down the food that we eat, allowing the body and use the useful parts of the body to help us get our food out of our system after we eat it. it makes it small and takes the nutrients out to store
Closed system is a term specifically used in Thermal Engineering. System-A definite area/space where some thermodynamic process is taking place. CLOSED SYSTEM- is a system that does not permit any mass transfer across its boundary but permits transfer of energy/
The convolutions increase the surface are of the cerebrum.
As the cell grows larger the ratio of surface area to volume increases. Larger cell = more volume for the amount surface area.
They are there to increrase the surface area so more absorbtion can take place.
The small intestine is the part of the digestive system responsible for absorbing most of the nutrients. The villi are the structural feature that maximize surface area for absorption.
The stomach which is lined with ridges called Rugae the small intestines, lined with vili and micro-vili
Nothing. The cylinder's surface area does not have a GCF.
Simply put, larger surface area allows for more digestive process to occur.
The small intestine is the largest in the digestive system because it has the largest surface area. The whole inside of the small intestine is covered in villi and micro villi and when spread out it would be about the size of 4 tennis courts! These villi and micro villi are there in order to allow the absorption of nutrients and gases into the circulatory system.
A system that multiplies force by transmitting pressure from a small surface area through a confined fluid to a larger surface area
