The upper limb is attached to the trunk at the shoulder. • Human physiology is the study of body functions. 2 Levels of Organization • • The body consists of several levels of organization of increasing complexity. • From simple to complex, the organizational levels are chemical, cellular, tissue, organ, organ system, and organismal. • The organs of the body are arranged in coordinated groups called organ systems. 5 Body Planes and Sections • Well-defined planes are used to guide sectioning of the body or organs.

We will explore this next. Organization of the Body 29 two atoms. An atom combines with another atom in order to fill its valence shell. A full valence shell makes an atom more stable. To do this, atoms either (1) receive or lose electrons, which results in the formation of an ionic bond; or (2) share electrons, which leads to the formation of a covalent bond. Ionic Bonds Chemical Bonds Chemicals are combined when electrons interact to form chemical bonds, which join atoms together to form a molecule.

The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14. The concentration of H+ decreases and the concentration of OH- increases as the pH values increase. These ions are equal in concentration at pH 7, so a solution with a pH of 7 is neither an acid nor a base and is referred to as neutral. For example, pure water has a pH of 7. Acids and Bases HCl KOH KCl + An acid is a chemical that releases hydrogen ions (H ) into solution. The stronger the acid, the greater is the degree of dissociation, which results in a greater concentration of H+.
