Example text

Graphically, a vector is shown as a directed segment of a straight line. The length of the segment represents the magnitude of the vector. The direction of the line segment is the direction of the vector. The sense of direction is from the tail end of the segment to the end capped by an arrow. In this text we use boldface type when referring to a vector. As illustrated in Fig. 3, vectors are added by bringing them together arrow to tail and then by connecting the free tail with that of the free arrow.

Otherwise, structures traversing the joint run the risk of damage. It has been suggested that biarticular muscles prevent the rotational energy of segments from reaching levels that could lead to injury to the ligaments and tendons. Of the nine muscles that cross the shoulder joint to insert on the humerus, only the superficial pectoralis major, latissimus dorsi, and deltoid muscles are prime movers of the arms. The remaining six are synergists and fixators. 12). This fanlike muscle is of the convergent type and belongs to the appendicular musculature.

In a circular muscle (Fig. 10d), the fibers are concentrically arranged around an opening such as the mouth. When the muscle contracts, the diameter of the opening decreases. According to their primary functions, muscles are grouped into three categories. A prime mover (agonist) is a muscle whose contraction is chiefly responsible for producing a particular movement. For example, the biceps is made up of two muscles on the front part of the upper arm that are responsible for flexing the forearm upward toward the shoulder.
