What is Homeostasis? and What is Skeletal system?

What is the Skeletal system ?

Your skeletal system is all of the bones in the body and the tissue,tendons,ligaments and cartilage that connect them.

What is Homeostasis?

Cells need conditions to work properly. They need food and oxygen and to have their waste taken away. If the body conditions were to change, cells would not be able to do their jobs. Homeostasis is the maintenance of a constant internal environment when outside conditions change. Responding to change allows all system to work properly

Two fun facts about Homeostasis

If one body does not work properly, other body systems can be affected. For example, body cells that do not get enough energy or nutrients cannot work properly.A lack of food harms many systems and may cause disease or even death.

Problems also occur if the boys message do not work, or they are not sent when they are needed. Many disease which affect homeostasis are hereditary

Three facts about the Skeletal system

Adults have 206 bones in their bodies, but the same is not true for infants.The skeleton of a newborn baby is approximate 300 different components,which are a mixture of bones and cartilage. The cartilage eventually solidifies into a bone in a process call ossification- for example the knee caps of a newborn starts off as cartilage and becomes bones in a few years

The hands and feet contains over half of the body's bones. Bones come in all shapes and sizes and are not distributes throughout the body. There are 27 bones and 26 bones in your foot.

Some people may have an extra rib that can cause to health issues.Most adults have 24 ribs (12 pairs), but about one in very 500 people has an extra rib, called a cervical rib. This rib witch grows from the base of the neck just above the collarbone,is not always fully formed- its sometimes just as think strand of tissue fibers.

How is Homeostasis and Skeletal alike and different?

Well that's a good question Skeletal system and Homeostasis are alike for one reason, and that reason is that they both help your body get new blood cell. For example the skeletal system helps maintain Homeostasis by producing new red blood cells as the old ones die off. It also helps maintain the level of calcium in the blood stream. Now they are different because they both have different things they do on their own what I mean by that I mean that they both do help you get new cells but the Skeletal system helps you move and Homeostasis helps you by keeping your systems in balance
