Asked by Abdulrahman

Describe mechanical digestion using one example?

An excellent example of mechanical digestion would be Mastication. Mastication is the physical act of chewing, this is done through the assistance of many different elements in the mouth like the teeth and saliva. With the teeth functioning in mastication by cutting, tearing and grinding the food which is then manipulated by saliva to form a bolus. This allows the next step to occur-swallowing.
