Umm, I really don't know what half of those words mean. But I do know that the smooth muscle is slow, and is involuntary. The smooth muscle pushes food through your digestive system, helps push out a baby, holds in urine(when you've really got to go Grinning Face with Smiling Eyes), and makes the food go back up when you are puking. Hope this helped.

slight (but smooth) contraction

This thing refers to a twitch more than anything. The muscle twitch is the response of a muscle to a single action potential on its motor neuron. When force is increased, you get multiple motor unit summation, which is how a smooth increase in muscle force is produced. In other words, a summation of forces from multiple motor units produces a vigorous contraction of the same muscle.
