Transcript

  • 1. PRESENTATION BY KATISI L F 201148913
  • 2. • The chemical breakdown of complex biological molecules into their component parts. Digestion
  • 3. Phases of Digestion • • • • • Ingestion Movement Digestion Absorption Further digestion
  • 4. Digestion • Mechanical –Changes the physical form of food • Chew • Tear • Grind • Mash • Mix
  • 5. The Digestive Tract • Parts of the Digestive Tract – Mouth – Pharynx – Esophagus – Stomach – Small Intestine – Large Intestine
  • 6. Mouth • Tongue – Mixes and rolls food into tiny mashed up bits (Bolus) – Pushes the bolus toward the pharynx and into the esophagus when swallowing.
  • 7. Accessory Parts • Organs that are not in the digestive tract but helps in the digestion
  • 8. Esophagus • A straight muscular tube that is about 10 inches (25 cm) long which connects the mouth with the stomach • Food takes about 4 to 8 seconds as it passes through to the stomach. • Its walls contain smooth muscles that contracts in wavy motion (Peristalsis). • Peristalsis propels food and liquid slowly down the esophagus into the stomach. • Cardiac Sphincter (ring-like valve) relaxes to allow food into the stomach.
  • 9. Stomach • Pepsin – major enzyme; converts proteins into peptides in the presence of HCL. • Mucus – lubricates food and protects the gastric lining from strong digestive juices. • Converts the bolus into a liquid (chyme) after 4 hrs of mechanical and chemical digestion • Chyme passes through the pyloric sphincter into the small intestine.
  • 10. Stomach
  • 11. Small Intestine • Site of greatest amount of digestion and absorption
  • 12. Small Intestine • Has folded inner walls covered with fingerlike projections (villi; sing. – villus) • Each villus has tinier projections called microvilli that absorbs digested food. • Villi and microvilli increases the surface area of the small intestine for greater absorption. • Peristalsis moves the undigested food to the large intestine.
  • 13. Large Intestine
  • 14. Large Intestine • Waste is pushed into the expanded portion (rectum) of the large intestine. • Solid waste stays in the rectum until it is excreted through the anus as feces.
  • 15. Large Intestine • Waste is pushed into the expanded portion (rectum) of the large intestine. • Solid waste stays in the rectum until it is excreted through the anus as feces. • Appendix hangs on the right side of the large intestine.
