1. The heart of a mammal contains four main chambers. The action of these chambers is
coordinated by electrical activity in specialised tissues.
The figure below shows where these tissues are found in the heart.
(i) Name the tissues labelled T, U and V.
T ........SAN............................................................
U ........AVN............................................................
V ........Purkayne Tissiue............................................................

Here's a taster:

Describe how the action of the heart is initiated and coordinated.
In your answer, you should use appropriate technical terms, spelt correctly.
The action of the heart is initiated by SAN sending a wave of excitation (electrical
activity) from the right atrium to the atrial walls. This makes the right and left
atrium to contract together.
Then the wave of excitation is send to the atrioventricular node (AVN).…read more

State two other ways in which the wall of an artery is different from the wall of a
vein.
1 ......................................................................................................................
The walls of artery is thick but veins are thin.
2 ......................................................................................................................
The artery have smaller lumen than the vein.…read more

Here's a taster:

Calculate the actual width of the vessel in mm between points E and F. Show
your working and express your answer to the nearest whole number.
Actual size= Image size divided by magnification
85 Divided by 12=7.083
Answer = .........7......................... mm

grammar.
The diagram below shows the internal structure of the mammalian heart and
associated blood vessels.
Veins, such as the vena cava shown on the figure above, all have a similar structure.
Describe the structure of veins and explain how their structure is related to their
function.…read more
