Campbellsville High School students recently performed an experiment to test the strength of the bones in the human body.
Students in Dee Doss’s anatomy class are studying the bones of the human body.
To test the strength of the long bone in a person’s leg, students were asked to make a makeshift bone by rolling together 20 sheets of paper.
The paper gave the “bone” its strength and ability to withstand great amounts of force.
To simulate how strong the bone is, students tied a bag to the “bone” and then added textbooks.
Students added many textbooks and the “bone” absorbed the force.
