    2. middle: centrally located in thoracic cavity (contains heart)
    3. Posterior

    diaphragmatic surface: lt ventricle, small part rt ventricle
    L pulmonary: L ventricle, L atrium
    R pulmonary: R atrium
    Base (posterior surface): L atrium, small part R atrium, proximal parts great veins

          

  4. What vessels return blood to the R atrium?-superior vena cava
