The whole process of contraction in a muscle occurs in what fraction of a second? 1/40
What law states that a stimulus strong enough to cause contraction in an individual muscle cell will result in maximal contraction? all-or-none law

What are the muscles that bring about an action called? prime movers
What are the muscles that assist the prime movers called? synergists
What is a condition in which a muscle shortens its length in the resting state called? contracture
What are the spastic and painful contractions of muscles that occur because of an irritation within the muscle such as inflammation of connective tissue or lactic acid buildup called? cramps
What is the term that means muscle pain called? myalgia
What is the term that means inflammation of muscular tissue called? myositis
What is the term for when there is a decrease in muscle bulk due to a lack of exercise called? atrophy
What is the inflammation of a tendon called? tendinitis
What is the inherited muscular disorder, most common in males, where the muscle tissue degenerates over time resulting in complete helplessness called? muscular dystrophy
What is characterized by the easy tiring of muscles or muscle weakness? myasthenia gravis
