Step 1

As we are entitled to answer one question at a time, we are answering the first one (Ques no.6). Kindly resubmit the other question(s), so that we can help you in a better manner.

The question asks the difference between nonaxial, uniaxial, biaxial and multiaxial synovial joints.

Step 2

A synovial joint (diarthrosis) is a type of joint that joins the bones with a fibrous joint capsule. It is a continuous joint which has the periosteum of the joined bones. Periosteum is a solid layer of the vascular connective tissue that envelopes the bones excluding at the joint surfaces. The synovial cavity or joint contains the synovial fluid. These are the most movable joints present in the human body. The six types of synovial joints are the pivot, saddle, hinge, condyloid, plane, and ball-and-socket.

Step 3

Synovial joints are usually classified as four types: nonaxial, uniaxial, biaxial, and multiaxial. They show a major difference based on their motion planes.

  1. Nonaxial synovial joints: These are the joints which show the slipping movement only. There is no axis about which the movement can take place. For example; gliding joints.
  2. Uniaxial synovial joints: These are the joints that allow the sliding and gliding movements as the bones articular surfaces are flat. They show movement to take place i...
