What is Wound: Definition and 37 Discussions

A wound is a type of injury which happens relatively quickly in which skin is torn, cut, or punctured (an open wound), or where blunt force trauma causes a contusion (a closed wound). In pathology, it specifically refers to a sharp injury which damages the epidermis of the skin.

    A string over a pulley with two hoops wound like spools on each end

    I have seen the solution to this problem but I don't understand it. Here is my drawing of the problem. Apparently I should do the sum of the forces and sum of the torques for both hoops like this: hoop 1: (1) τ - M1g = M1(a1t-a1R) (2) τR1 = ½M1R12a1r/R1 hoop 2: (3) M2g - τ = M2(a1t+a2r) (4)...

    Why Does Lack of Sleep Affect Wound Healing?

    Let's say you hurt your finger. If you lack sleep. Why would it affect healing of the finger? Is it not the innate immune cells in the fingers and blood work isolated there?

    I Force exerted by a rope wound around a disk

    The above picture shows the forces on a disk supported by a rope which is wound around it. The tension T is shown to be acting at the point where the rope loses contact with the disk. I think the reason for this is that the friction is assumed to be huge so that the tension in the rope also acts...

    Why is exit wound in a rifle gun shot injury bigger than entry wound?

    Hi, Generally if u see a post mortem skull after a rifle shot injury, exit wound is bigger than entry wound. Shouldn't the bullet lose lots of its energy when coming out, hence smaller wound. Maybe it is spinning or something, but I want to get others views. Thanks :smile:

    Field loss in a shunt wound dc motor

    In a field loss event, why does a shunt wound dc motor run away? From my understand of electric motor, the armature spins because it's magnetic field pushes/pulls against the field winding's magnetic field. If I remove power to the field winding, then shouldn't the motor slows down because the...
