... force of 0·33 ± 0·01 N. The total maximum bite force is therefore about 3·3 N, only 10% being contributed by the internal adductors. The safety factor of both internal and external systems is about 2. The mean sarcomere length of half-contracted fibres of the external adductor muscles was 11· 62 ± 0·11...
