Brenda -- you've asked several medical terminology questions this afternoon.
If you don't you know these answers, I suggest you either read your text materials or drop this class.
Use a dictionary if you don't understand some of the vocabulary.
Please note that Jiskha tutors HELP students -- but we are not an answer-supply forum.
Apex is the tip of the heart, try looking in your text book for a picture of the heart, usually there's a description of all the values...etc.
