Which type of bone matures early in life, intramembranous bones or endochondral?

bone matrix

bone can never grow from within the ____ ____

Wolff's Law

In this law of bone, the architecture of bone is determined by mechanical stresses placed on it and bones adapt to withstand those stresses

osteoblasts, osteoclasts

What two cells correspond to Wolff's law of bone remodeling?


this is the process whereby calcium phosphate is removed from the blood and deposited into the bone by osteoblasts

mineral resorption is performed by ___


a deficiency of calcium in the blood

hyaline cartilage

______ _____ is the structural material replaced with bone during endochondral ossification
