Parts of a long bone Please color code the femur. Color code letters a-g.
Epiphysis A. Ends of the bone (Proximal and distal)
Epiphyseal plate A1: Cartilage growth plates on bone ends. (Growth plate)
(hyaline) cartilage on end of bone b bone trabeculae of spongy bone c red marrow cavity d epiphyseal plate (hyaline cartilage)
a Epiphyseal plate made of hyaline cartilage is responsible for long bone growth. Note: The direction of growth is toward the diaphysis (shaft of long bone). Also Note: The newly forming spongy bone (below the growth plate) is not clearly organized as the older spongy bone in the epiphysis above the growth plate.
