How much CO2 ppm do human lungs exhale on average?
It depends on a number of factors such as age, heart rate and depth of breathing. However, on average a human being exhales around 40,000 PPM of CO2.

Red blood cells collect CO2 when they distribute oxygen throughout the body. The CO2 is transferred from the red blood cells to the alveoli in the lungs, and then exhale…d.
Normal air contains approximately 20% O2 and 0.5% CO2. When ahuman inhales, we absorb and use some of the oxygen we breathe in.Our metabolism converts that Oxygen to Carbon Di…oxide, which weexhale, or outgas. However, the process isn't perfect: we don't useall the oxygen we inhale, nor to we exhale all the carbon dioxidein our system. So, when we exhale, the exhaled breath containseither 14% or 16% oxygen, down from the 20% the air contains. Thisis, by the way, why CPR and rescue breathing work. While yourexhalent does not contain the full 20% O2 we see in free air, itcontains enough oxygen for a person to survive on. . The actual quantity depends on the size of the person.
The average percentage of CO2 in exhaled air was found to be 5%.
CO2 is produced as a waste product of cellular respiration, so if it's allowed to accumulate within the cells, it becomes toxic by forming carbonic acid as it reacts with wate…r.
It would depend on the person's size and how active they are. Find the CO2 rates for an hour during sleep and being awake, multiply them by whatever you need and you'll figure… out an annual estimate.. However, a rough estimate (curtesy of "The Earth Blog") assuming 12 breaths per minute (resting breath rate) is 500kg The number is easy to estimate: breaths per minute x CO2 per breath x minutes per year From Wiki - the breath rate is 12 to 25 per minute. Size of breath is 500 mL. Percent CO2 exhaled is 4% so CO2 per breath is approx 0.04g ( 2g/L x .04 x .5l). CO2 Per year= 12 x 0.04 x 525600 (minutes per year) = 252kg/yr CO2 (25 breaths) = 525 Kg/yr. So - pick a number between 252 Kg/yr and 525Kg/yr 1000 lbs/year is a good figure of merit.
An adult human lung weighs about 1.1 kilograms on the average. The left lung will weigh about 1.05 kg and the right lung weighs about 1.15 kg. The right lung has one more sect…ion than the left lung making it slightly larger and heavier.
The human lungs weighs 2.5 pounds.
When you breathe out, or exhale, your diaphragm relaxes and moves upward into the chest cavity. The intercostal muscles between the ribs also relax to reduce the space in the …chest cavity. This is done because the lungs become smaller
Anything that needs oxygen to breath exhales c02, that includes mammals ans reptiles.
Answer . Inhalation is caused by a reduction in air pressure inside the lungs by increasing their volume through diaphragm contraction. Exhalation is cause by the decreasin…g lung volume upon relaxation of the diaphragm. The elasticity of lung tissue causes the lung to retract, increasing the internal lung pressure above atmospheric pressure and the air moves out.
When this happens, your lungs and the rib cage (with muscles between each rib) expand when inhaling, and return to their previous size.
the size of a footbal. if you were to unfold all of the air sacs inside of it (300) it could cover a football field.
It depends on age, gender and activity but on average a human exhales 1 KG per day? If you are thinking of global warming, then the carbon dioxide exhaled by humans (and ani…mals) does not contribute to global warming. The carbon we exhale was taken from the world very recently, so breathing is part of the carbon cycle. Alot.
The average Canadian produces approximately 23 tonnes of Greenhouse gasses.
What would happen to the pH of cells if CO2 was not carried away from the cells by the circulatory system and exhaled after being passed into the lungs?
Carbon dioxide and water can lead to carbonic acid. This acid can give you a condition called Acidosis. Acidosis is when your blood becomes slightly acidic, not slightly b…asic, which isn't normal. The pH level would decrease to possibly a 5 or 6.
Exhalation, or 'breathing out', is the part of breathing where air is released from the lungs. Put another way, it is the end of the cycle of breathing. It is the opposite of …inhalation, or 'breathing in', where air is taken into the lungs. OR ANOTHER WAY TO PUT IT... It is when you breathe out. That's why someone might tell you "Inhale..... Exhale.....". It's when the diaphragm pushes the air out of your lungs. When the diaphragm pulls down, you are inhaling. When your diaphragm pushes out, you have just exhaled. That's where the part "exhalation" comes from, and for "human"... I'm pretty sure you'd know that. ;) Hope this helps!
