Main Question or Discussion Point

This isnt an asignment,more of a doubt which i could use help with.


What exactly is the sturnal part of the rib.

I didnt quite get that.

Is it the part which contains coastal cartilage ?
I saw quite a few diagrams in on the net and even read whatever is given on the Book "MTG:Objective Biology" about it...but im still not quite sure what is actually is....

Hey berkeman
As per the MTG Objective Biology(4th bulletin)
And The class lectures our Professor gave us ,the rib is divided into a sternal and a vertebral section.A picture of the text is in the description .
By Sternal Rib Area I mean to say the part of the rib which is the sternal rib

I have checked these two links after reading that
https://www.britannica.com/science/rib-bone
And ofcource Wikipedia https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rib

***And they haven't mentioned a thing about it !***

So it sounds like they are referring to the anterior portion of each rib that consists of the Costal cartilage, which attaches to the sternum, no?

Exactly ! But then we have those beautiful floating ribs and false ribs...so is it safe to assume they have only a vertebral part ?
