16. the abdominal muscles & the diaphragm
17. bicarbonate ions
18. -prosecretin (is converted into secretin and signals the pancreas)
-enterokinase (converts trypsinogen to trypsin)
-erepsins (protein-digesting enzymes)
-bicarbonate ions
-pancreatic lipases (break down fats)
19. 2.5 cm in diameter * up to 7 metres long
duodenum is about 25-30 cm long
20. jejunum & ileum; absorption of nutrients occurs here
