Hi,

diaphysis is the shaft of the bone it contains bone marrow,

epiphysis is the end part of the bone it has growth plate that closes after the puberty,

another part is articular part which forms part of joints.

ligmaents are the tissue that join the joints they also supply the blood vessels,

yellow marrow is the fatty marrow containing fat.

red marrow forms blood cells,

muscles
are the tissues that are speacialized in movements,

fibrocartilage forms part of joints,

cancellous bone, synonymous with trabecular bone or spongy bone, is one of the two types of tissues which form bones.

Compared to compact bone which is the other type of osseous tissue,

it has a higher suface area but is less dense, softer, weaker, and less stiff. It typically occupies the interior region of bones.

Cancellous bone is highly vascular and frequently contains red bone marrow which produces blood cells.

periosteum
is the covering of the bone .

Hi,

Bone itself is a hard structure that is meant to give shape to the body,

diaphysis is the shaft of the bone it contains bone marrow(which forms all the blood cells)

epiphysis is the end part of the bone it has growth plate that closes after the puberty,if it closes early then height of the person remains short.

muscles are the tissues that are specialized in movements,skeletal muscles are those which are under voluntary control, while smooth muscles are involuntary.


fibrocartilage forms part of joints,they are meant for providing articular surface for the joints(prevent a cushion like surface).

cancellous bone, synonymous with trabecular bone or spongy bone, is one of the two types of tissues which form bones.

Compared to compact bone which is the other type of osseous tissue,

it has a higher surface area but is less dense, softer, weaker, and less stiff. It typically occupies the interior region of bones.

Cancellous bone is highly vascular and frequently contains red bone marrow which produces blood cells.

periosteum forms outer surface of the bones but not the articular surfaces, they have blood supply so they provide nutrition to the bone.

hope it helps
