Identify Various Muscle Types - Quiz

Students will need to identify various muscle types, their functions, and their locations in the human body.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Fill in the concept map below with the appropriate name of the muscle tissue.

    Explanation
    The appropriate name for the muscle tissue is skeletal muscle. Skeletal muscles are attached to the skeleton and are responsible for voluntary movement of the body. They are striated in appearance and are under conscious control. Skeletal muscle tissue is made up of long, cylindrical cells called muscle fibers, which are multinucleated and contain specialized contractile proteins that allow for muscle contraction.

    Fill in the concept map below with the appropriate name of the muscle tissue.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is the names of different types of muscle tissues. "Smooth muscle" refers to the type of muscle found in the walls of organs and blood vessels, responsible for involuntary movements. "Cardiac muscle" refers to the muscle tissue found in the heart, responsible for the heart's contractions. The terms "smooth muscles" and "cardiac muscles" are simply the plural forms of the respective muscle types.

    Fill in the concept map below with the appropriate name of the muscle tissue.

    Explanation
    The given correct answer lists the appropriate names of muscle tissue types. Smooth muscle refers to the type of muscle found in the walls of organs and blood vessels, responsible for involuntary movements. Cardiac muscle refers to the type of muscle found in the heart, responsible for pumping blood. The answer includes both the singular and plural forms of these muscle types.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    What is the difference between voluntary and involuntary muscle?

  • 5. 

    Circle the example(s) of cardiac muscle:

    • A.

      Stomach

    • B.

      Heart

    • C.

      Jaw

    • D.

      Arm

    • E.

      Blood vessels

    Correct Answer
    B. Heart
    Explanation
    The correct answer is heart because the heart is composed of cardiac muscle tissue. Cardiac muscle is a specialized type of muscle found only in the heart. It is responsible for the contraction and relaxation of the heart, allowing it to pump blood throughout the body. The other options listed, such as stomach, jaw, arm, and blood vessels, do not contain cardiac muscle.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Circle the example(s) of smooth muscle:

    • A.

      Stomach

    • B.

      Heart

    • C.

      Jaw

    • D.

      Arm

    • E.

      Blood vessels

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Stomach
    E. Blood vessels
    Explanation
    Smooth muscle is found in the walls of organs and blood vessels. The stomach is an example of an organ that contains smooth muscle. Smooth muscle is also present in blood vessels, which help to control blood flow and regulate blood pressure. Therefore, the examples of smooth muscle in the given options are the stomach and blood vessels.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Circle the example(s) of skeletal muscle:

    • A.

      Stomach

    • B.

      Heart

    • C.

      Jaw

    • D.

      Arm

    • E.

      Blood vessels

    Correct Answer(s)
    C. Jaw
    D. Arm
    Explanation
    The jaw and the arm are examples of skeletal muscles. Skeletal muscles are attached to bones and are responsible for voluntary movements, such as chewing (jaw) and lifting (arm). The stomach, heart, and blood vessels are not skeletal muscles. The stomach has smooth muscle tissue, the heart has cardiac muscle tissue, and the blood vessels have smooth muscle tissue.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Why do skeletal muscles work in pairs?

  • 9. 

    You’re eating pizza with your friends and thinking about all the ways muscles are helping you enjoy each hot, gooey bite.  Write a paragraph describing how skeletal, cardiac, and smooth muscles work to allow you to eat the pizza.  Make sure you use at least one example for each muscle type.  Don’t just list the muscle types – make sure you describe how they’re working to help you eat the pizza.
