Describe how the knee joint’s centre of rotation changes in the sagittal plane as it flexes and extends.
The knee joint's centre of rotation in the sagittal plane follows a semicircular path as it flexed and extended.

In which plane does the majority of knee motion occur?
The majority of knee joint motion occurs in the sagittal plane.

How is the range of motion in the transverse plane dependent on the amount of flexion and extension?
The range of motion in the transverse plane is almost zero at full extension, increases with flexion to a maximum at around 90° of flexion and reduces with further flexion.

During standing up how will the amount of motion in the sagittal plane be affected when the height of the chair is lowered?
If the height of the chair is lowered then the range of knee joint motion required in the sagittal plane will be increased since the knee will start at a position of greater flexion.
