What are the two different colors observed in the periosteum and bone marrow?
The compact bone can be seen as the layer just underneath the periosteum, color both ends. The medullar cavity of the diaphysis serves to lighten bone weight and provide space for marrow. Yellow marrow is associated with fat.
What are the red and blue lines on the bone called?
The epiphysial line or disk is also called the growth plate, it is found on both ends of the long bone. The diaphysis is the shaft of the long bone. It has compact bone with a central cavity.
What is the color of periosteum?
It has compact bone with a central cavity. ARTICULAR CARTILAGE (C) – green The articular cartilage is found on the ends of long bones. It is smooth, slippery, and bloodless. PERIOSTEUM (d) – dark blue Periosteum is a fibrous, vascular, sensitive life support covering for bone.
Where do u find yellow marrow?
Where is yellow bone marrow found? Yellow bone marrow is located in the hollow cavity of long bones. It is typically found at the center surrounded by red bone marrow.

What type of cartilage is found at the ends of the long bones?
characteristics. Hyaline cartilage is the most widespread and is the type that makes up the embryonic skeleton. It persists in human adults at the ends of bones in free-moving joints as articular cartilage, at the ends of the ribs, and in the nose, larynx, trachea, and…
What cushions the ends of bones?
Cartilage is a type of firm, thick, slippery tissue that coats the ends of bones where they meet with other bones to form a joint. Cartilage acts as a protective cushion between bones.
What are facts about cartilage?
Cartilage is a specialized type of tissue found in joints and areas that two bones come together. It is made up of specialized cells that live in the midst of proteins and sugars that absorb and release water similar to a sponge.
What is the most common type of cartilage?
Hyaline cartilage is the most common type in the body. This cartilage type is found in the larynx, nose, ribs, and trachea. A very thin layer of cartilage is also present on bony surfaces, such as over joints, to cushion them.
What are the three types of cartilage?
Types of Cartilage. There are three major types of cartilage: hyaline cartilage, fibrocartilage, and elastic cartilage. Hyaline cartilage is the most widespread cartilage type and, in adults, it forms the articular surfaces of long bones, the rib tips, the rings of the trachea, and parts of the skull.
What tissues are found in cartilage?
Cartilage is a type of connective tissue that is formed by cells called chondrocytes. These cells could occur singly or in groups within lacunae, which are spaces within the matrix. Perichondrium refers to the membrane of dense, irregular connective tissue that surrounds the surface of most of the cartilage in the human body.
