    Anatomy – parts of the body, what they are made of, and their location.

    Physiology – how those parts of the body work.

    Use these definitions to answer the question and you will have a greater understanding of what you are studying. Getting other people to answer the question for you is not learning – it’s cheating. Answer it using the definitions I gave you, then post your answers in the additional details and I can tell you if you are correct and fix any mistakes.

    Since "Sheon" just walked all over what I said by giving you his answers I might as well give you mine:

    A. Anatomy
    B. Anatomy
    C. Physiology(it’s the study of how a living body system works and so you need to study a living subject)
    D. Both(Chemistry is defined as the science that describes matter – properties, changes it undergoes, and energy changes that go along with the processes)
    E. Anatomy
    F. Physiology
    G. Physiology(observing how the heart works)

    The kidneys don’t filter water – they filter the blood and excrete the waste as urine.

    Anatomy is structure- like bones or an organ.

    Physiology is the process of how it works, such as how the kidneys filter water.

  • The above are correct also:

    A anatomy
    B anatomy
    C both
    D physiology
    E physiology
    F physiology
    G both (although more physiology than anatomy)
