MT: Muscular
System
I will understand the
function of the
muscular system.
Fxn of Skeletal Muscle:
Movement
Heat
Production
Posture
Movement


attached to bone
contracts thus
producing movement
Ex: walking, talking,
chewing, blinking
Heat Production


Reactions during
muscle contraction
produce heat
Heat contributes to
constant body
temperature
(homeostasis of
temperature)
Why do we shiver when we're
cold?

Shivering is a result of
muscle contraction.
This produces heat
thus increasing your
body temperature.
Posture


Continuous partial
contraction of skeletal
muscles
Allows standing,
sitting, and
maintaining a stable
body position while
walking, running, and
all other movements.
Fxn of Cardiac Muscle:
Pump
blood
Pumping Blood


Cardiac muscle cells
contract to provide all
cells with blood
Blood has all of the
nutrients that cells
need to be healthy
Fxn of Smooth Muscle:
transport
nutrients &
waste
Transport Nutrients/Waste


Smooth muscles line
the inside of hollow
organs and blood
vessels
Ex: swallowing,
digesting food in
intestines, defecating,
erection
