Skeletal Muscle Physiology

Voltage Latent Period
contraction- beginning of tension to peak tension
stimulus frequency- increase per unit time
both can increase force, but within limits
max tetanic tension at 5 (120-200 msec)
time (msec) on x axis
*but keep length-tension curve in mind
is worst at minimum and maximum length
(although some would argue that the hold at the shoulder is part of the concentric contraction, which is isotonic)
Words From Our Students
"StudyBlue is great for studying. I love the study guides, flashcards, and quizzes. So extremely helpful for all of my classes!"
Alice, Arizona State University
"I'm a student using StudyBlue, and I can 100% say that it helps me so much. Study materials for almost every subject in school are available in StudyBlue. It is so helpful for my education!"
Tim, University of Florida
"StudyBlue provides way more features than other studying apps, and thus allows me to learn very quickly! I actually feel much more comfortable taking my exams after I study with this app. It's amazing!"
Jennifer, Rutgers University
"I love flashcards but carrying around physical flashcards is cumbersome and simply outdated. StudyBlue is exactly what I was looking for!"
