When the lungs inhale oxygen what does it exhale as a waste?
The lungs largely exhale carbon dioxide and water vapor along with the non-oxygen components of the air taken in (such as nitrogen).

It basically is used to burn fuel to power the body, more or less just like a campfire uses the air to burn. When the blood goes to the lungs, oxygen is absorbed in and as it …leaves the lungs to go to the different parts of the body, it provides the energy. Therefore, the lesser the amount of oxygen in the blood, the weaker we become and body organs will die ultimately.
When this happens, your lungs and the rib cage (with muscles between each rib) expand when inhaling, and return to their previous size.
so you can get oxygen in you body Lungs inhale to supply the body with oxygen, they exhale to dispose of poisonous gasses such as carbon dioxide.
Exhaled air contains 16% oxygen and 21% when inhaled.
In air there is 20.98% Oxygen, so that's what we inhale. We exhale 16% of this Oxygen; hence why cardiopulmonary resuscitation is possible.
Your lungs are known as the "respiratory center" of your body. They exchange all sorts of gases such as carbon dioxide, oxygen and other byproducts. When you inhale your diap…hragm goes up, and then when you exhale your diaphragm will flatten. The portion of your lungs called the "ALVEOLI" is what exchanges the gases. This part is 1 cell layer thick, and can have easy exchange of carbon dioxide and oxygen.
yes, because your body expells carbon dioxide after inhaling oxygen
Because when you exhale, carbon dioxide comes out, NOT OXYGEN
When you breathe in, your diaphragm will contract, causing your lungs to expand and suck in air. When you breathe out, your diaphragm will relax, causing your lungs to shrink …and force out air.
The diaphram which is a sheet of internal skeletal muscle that extends across the bottom of the ribcage. The muscle expands and contracts causing the lungs to fill and empty.
Yes, but not as O2. Cows, just like us humans, exhale CO2, which is carbon dioxide, a molecule that has oxygen with a carbon atom attached.
In a manner of speaking, yes. However the form that oxygen is in is not pure when exhaled: it is bonded with a carbon atom, making the molecule carbon dioxide, which is the pr…oduct exhaled from the lungs during the process of respiration.

when lungs inhale oxygen what doesit exhale as waste
Like all animals, they inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide.
