It is important to be comfortable with the calculation of moments; hence, consider the following example. 7 Vector operations are reviewed in Appendix 7, if needed. 1 Prove that r  F  r⊥  F where r⊥ is the shortest distance between o and the line of action of F. Solution: For simplicity, let us consider the 2-D case. Referring to Fig. 10 let 0 0 0 0 e ⊥ and r ¼ r x^i þr y ^j ¼rx^i þr y ^j depending on which coordinate r⊥ ¼ d^ system is found to be most convenient. Likewise, the force vector can be written 0 0 0 0 0 as F ¼ Fx^i þF y ^j ¼Fx ^i þF y ^j .

According to the sliding filament model proposed in 1954, sarcomeres consist of overlapping thin (actin) and thick (myosin) filaments. 4. 7 Schema of the cross-bridge mechanism that is thought to control the contraction and relaxation of muscle. In particular, the cross-bridges allow a ratcheting motion between the thick myosin filaments and the thin actin filaments. Calcium plays a key role in this process. that attach, detach, and reattach in a ratcheting fashion with the actin, which thereby produces movement associated with the contraction of muscle (Fig.

8), the collagen molecule consists of three polypeptide α chains, each containing 1,300–1,700 amino acid residues. 18 1. 8 Schema of collagen at different levels of organization: from the triple-helix molecule consisting of three α-helices of repeating triplets of amino acids (G-X-Y), where G is glycine and X and Y are often proline or hydroxyproline, to an undulated fiber that could be found in arteries, cartilage, cornea, the heart, lungs, skin, tendons, and many other tissues. ]. The majority of these residues ($1,000–1,400) are organized into a central triple-helix motif (Ayad et al.
