  • The Stomach by Vanessa Hamilton
    • The stomach is a j-shaped muscular organ that acts like a bag or sac to collect and churn food with digestive juices.
    • It functions as an important organ in the digestive tract.
    • It is located between the esophagus and the small intestines.

  • Functions of the Stomach (Digestive)
    • When the stomach fills with food, the rugae stretch out and disappears.
    • Hydrochloric Acid is secreted by glands in the mucous membrane lining of the stomach.
    • Then passes through the remaining part of the digestive system.
    • Food mixes with the hydrochloric acid and other gastric juices to form a liquid mixture called chyme.
