We really don't use the term chambers for lungs. We use the term lobes. Each lung consists of several distinct lobes. The right lung (the larger of the two) has 3 lobes - the superior, middle, and inferior lobes. The horizontal fissure separates the superior lobe from the middle lobe, while the right oblique fissure separates the middle and inferior lobes. The smaller left lung only has 2 lobes - superior and inferior - separated by the left oblique fissure. There are about 300 million alveoli in each of your lungs. These tiny air sacs provide an ideal site for the diffusion of gases into and out of the blood - also known as gaseous exchange.
