• 1.

### The plane which divides the body into superior and inferior halves is known as the ...

• A.

Sagittal plane

• B.

Transverse plane

• C.

Coronal plane

• D.

Frontal plane

B. Transverse plane
Explanation
The transverse plane is the correct answer because it is the plane that divides the body into superior (upper) and inferior (lower) halves. This plane is also known as the horizontal plane as it is perpendicular to the sagittal and coronal planes.

### The plane which divides the body into left and right sides is known as the ...

• A.

Sagittal plane

• B.

Transverse plane

• C.

Horizontal plane

• D.

Coronal plane

A. Sagittal plane
Explanation
The sagittal plane is the correct answer because it is the plane that divides the body into left and right sides. This plane runs vertically from front to back, dividing the body into equal halves. The transverse plane divides the body into top and bottom sections, the horizontal plane divides the body into upper and lower sections, and the coronal plane divides the body into front and back sections.

### The plane which divides the body into anterior and posterior halves is known as the ...

• A.

Sagittal plane

• B.

Transverse plane

• C.

Frontal plane

• D.

Horizontal plane

C. Frontal plane
Explanation
The plane that divides the body into anterior and posterior halves is known as the frontal plane. This plane runs vertically from side to side and divides the body into front and back sections. It is also sometimes referred to as the coronal plane.

• A.

Sagittal plane

• B.

Frontal plane

• C.

Transverse plane

• D.

Horizontal plane

B. Frontal plane
Explanation
The correct answer is the frontal plane. The frontal plane, also known as the coronal plane, divides the body into front and back halves. It is perpendicular to the sagittal plane, which divides the body into left and right halves, and the transverse plane, which divides the body into top and bottom halves. The frontal plane is important in anatomical and medical imaging studies to understand the structures and movements of the body in relation to its front and back orientation.

### The plane which is also known as the horizontal plane is ...

• A.

Transverse plane

• B.

Frontal plane

• C.

Sagittal plane

• D.

None of the above

A. Transverse plane
Explanation
The correct answer is the transverse plane. The transverse plane, also known as the horizontal plane, is an imaginary plane that divides the body into superior (upper) and inferior (lower) portions. It runs horizontally from left to right, perpendicular to the sagittal and frontal planes. This plane is commonly used in anatomy to study the cross-sectional structures of the body.

### Tiger Woods is primarily moving in the sagittal plane

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
Frontal plane Golden rule - whatever side you are obtaining the information from is the plane they will be moving through

Rate this question:

• 7.

### From this viewpoint, Tiger is primarily moving in the .....

• A.

Longitudinal plane

• B.

Sagittal plane

• C.

Transverse plane

• D.

Coronal/frontal plane

D. Coronal/frontal plane
Explanation
option D is correct.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### The movement from this view is through the transverse plane

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Transverse (horizontal) - separates the movement into superior and inferior halves. Golden rule - whatever side you are obtaining the information from is the plane they will be moving through

Rate this question:

• 9.

### Which axis of rotation is formed through the intersection of the sagittal and frontal planes?

• A.

Frontal axis of rotation

• B.

Transverse axis of rotation

• C.

Sagittal axis of rotation

• D.

None of the above

C. Sagittal axis of rotation
Explanation
The sagittal axis of rotation is formed through the intersection of the sagittal and frontal planes. The sagittal plane divides the body into left and right halves, while the frontal plane divides the body into front and back halves. The intersection of these two planes creates an axis of rotation that allows movement in a forward and backward direction, such as flexion and extension. This axis is perpendicular to both the sagittal and frontal planes, making it the sagittal axis of rotation.

### The rotation of the upper body around the vertebral column occurs through the vertical axis of rotation. This axis is an intersection of the ___________ and ___________ planes.

• A.

Sagittal and frontal

• B.

Sagittal and transverse

• C.

Coronal and transverse

• D.

Frontal and transverse

A. Sagittal and frontal
Explanation
sagittal (left and right halves) and frontal (anterior and posterior) allow the body to move in twisting pattern
