The Basics to know: The structure or form of something is often related to its job or function. This can be found everywhere, in the human body, in nature, architecture, and even weather. Form Follows Function in the Human Body
The Heart: The heart is shaped with four champers that transport blood equally and efficiently around your body, with the least time, effort and energy, non stop throughout your lifetime. Each part depends and relies on another work properly and keep the blood flowing. Another example is the valve system. This key part causes one way blood flow to provide a steady stream of oxygenated blood. If you didn't have a valve, your blood would flow backward and mix with de-oxygenated blood, which is bad. Form Follows Function in the Human Body
Digestion: When food is physically broken down into smaller pieces through chewing and churning in the stomach, this increases the surface area for faster, more effective chemical breakdown in the digestive system. Form Follows Function in the Human Body
The Skeleton: The skeleton is made up of 206 rigid, strong bones that have their own special purpose. The skeleton protects internal organs and key parts in the body like the lungs and brain. Not only that, but it also provides a sturdy framework and keeps us standing upright. Form Follows in the Human Body
Alveoli in the Lungs: Tiny air-sacs in the lungs surrounded with capillaries, increase surface area for faster and effective gas exchange. Form Follows Function in the Human Body:
Villi in the Small Intestines Finger like projections in the small intestine with capillaries beneath the surface increase usable surface area for effective and quicker obsorbtion of nutrients into the bloodstream. Form Follows Function in Nature:
Camouflage Many plants and animals have adapted this technique of form follows function. One extraordinary example of this is the Indonesian Mimic Octopus. The Indonesian Mimic Octopus has a unique ability to turn virtually any color or pattern. This helps evading from sharks and other predators. Other Form Follows Function Examples... Probably one of the most famous and obvious examples of form follows function is the wheel. The wheels round shape makes it easy to push and roll. Another example is the umbrella. It's round top and dome makes water fall off the side easily and keep the object under it dry. Lastly, the pillars and foundation in a building are another great example. They keep stability and provide a strong structure, much like the skeletal framework in the human body. Thanks For Viewing my presentation. Form Follows Function
