Compare and contrast inhaled and exhaled air?
Inhaled air contains mainly oxygen to be extracted. Exhaled air is mainly carbon dioxide as the waste product of breathing.

Inhaled air contains oxygen that is absorbed in the lungs anddissolved in the blood. Exhaled air rids the body of carbonmonoxide.
Air in the atmosphere is a mix of about 78% nitrogen, 20.95% oxygen, 0.93% argon, and 0.038% carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) . When air is breathed in (inhaled) oxygen is absorbed by… the lungs, exchanging it for waste carbon dioxide, carrying the CO 2 away from the body when exhaled. . Exhaled air has a CO 2 content of about 5%, i.e. 125 times more CO 2 than inhaled air.
The air you exhale normally contains 19% less oxygen than inhaled air, with a 4% to 5% level of carbon dioxide and other gases, along with added water vapor. (Which is why you… can rebreathe it to control "hiccups".) Your body will continue to remove the remaining oxygen and add more carbon dioxide until the exhaled air is almost all nitrogen and CO 2 . So if you had only this air to breathe, your body would not be able to keep functioning and you could pass out and eventually die. This is the same situation as when one or more persons are trapped in a closed space with a limited amount of air. The considerable oxygen content (17%) in exhaled air allows mouth-to-mouth resuscitation in CPR.
The percentage of O 2 and CO 2 differ greatly in inhalation and exhalation. CO 2 levels tend to be higher in exhaled air as it is a metabolic waste product. O 2 levels ten…d to be lower in exhaled air as it is absorbed from the air and used by the metabolism.
Exhaled air - is the carbon dioxide that we breath out as a product of cellular respiration. Inhaled air is the oxygen we take in that is required for the process of cellular …respiration. Along with the oxygen we take in are other elements such as Nitrogen, which we don't use and it doesn't harm us. It's just a by product of breathing.
because when we inhale air all the dirt from the air is being transpor
Air is inhaled to use the oxygen for cell respiration. Then carbon dioxide and water (products of cell respiration) are breathed out because they are waste products.
okay, you breathe in, the air goes to your lungs, you breathe out, and the air comes out. sometimes it even comes out your wee wee, and that's called a QUEEF
What we breathe in is far from pure oxygen, but roughly by volume 78 per cent nitrogen, 21 per cent oxygen, 0.965 per cent argon and 0.04 per cent carbon dioxide (plus some he…lium, water and other gases). The permanent gases in air we exhale are roughly 78 per cent nitrogen, 15 to 18 per cent oxygen (we retain only a small amount), 4 to 5 per cent carbon dioxide and 0.96 per cent argon, the CO2 being of course used by plants during photosynthesis. We only use use up a little oxygen on what we actually breathe, and what we exhale, CO2 increases. And the other gases we breathe just goes in and out of our system.
Either through the nose or the mouth
You inhale by breathing in air and your lungs expand, you exhale by breathing out and your lungs decrease
by breathing! Thank you for reading my long winded anwser
The air we inhale is roughly composed of (by volume): 78% nitrogen 21% oxygen 0.96% argon 0.04% carbon dioxide, helium ,water, and other gases The permanent gases i…n gas we exhale are roughly 4% to 5% more carbon dioxide and 4% to 5% less oxygen than was inhaled. This expired air typically composed of: 78% nitrogen 13.6% - 16% oxygen 4% - 5.3% carbon dioxide 1% argon and other gases
Our intake is roughly 78% nitrogen and 21% oxygen, and 1% othergases. The exahled air can vary a bit but it is about 78% nitrogen and 16%oxygen, 5% Carbon dioxide, and 1% oth…er gases.
You expect the oxygen from exhaled air to be replaced by carbon bi oxide. There is physical limitation to this because of the physiological dead space. Fishes do not have it. …You expect the air to get saturated with water completely, subjected again to physiological dead space.
