You breath in oxygen which is O2
What is exhaled is CO2 or carbon dioxide.
The reason for this is the human metabolism is based on the reaction between Glucose (C6H12O6) and oxygen gas (O2). The oxygen reacts with the glucose to produce carbon dioxide and water to release energy for out bodies to use.
6O2 + C6H12O6 --> 6CO2 + 6H2O + energy
We need to get rid of the carbon dioxide because it is toxic.
The water produced is of little consequence as our bodies are mostly water anyway.
oxygen is one component of air, it makes up 22% of the volume of air. nitrogen makes up 77%. living things require oxygen in the proccess of respiration, which allows us to create energy. we inhale oxygen, it is absorbed by our lungs into our bloodstream, which trasports the oxygen to ourselves where respiration occurs.
We breathe in air which is actually a mix of many different gases. Oxygen is the portion of the air that is absorbed through our lungs into our blood stream.
The reason why the body has so much oxygen is because it is needed for all of its organs like the heart, lungs, and brain. A lack of oxygen also can cause respiratory failure.
You have to breathe in something! Oxygen + Carbon Dioxide = Glucose and water
Glucose is a form of sugar and gives the body energy.
You mainly exhale nitrogen and a little carbon dioxide.
Air contains about 21% oxygen and 79% nitrogen (with a very small percentage of inert gases). Therefore, with each breath, a significant amount of oxygen is inhaled.
At sea level, most of the oxygen that you breathe in gets exhaled right back out. This is about 80 percent of it.Only 20 percent of it gets absorbed by most people.
No, you use only a small portion of the oxygen you inhale. that is why you can blow into the mouth of someone who is not breathing and help them to breath on your exhaled air.
23% of oxygen is left in exhaled air
Trees don't really inhale, they take in gases. Trees take in air but they use the carbon dioxide from the air, and let out oxygen as a waste product of this. They continue doing this all day and night exactly the same
plants inhale carbon dioxide and exhale oxygen
You don't use all of it but you do use a lot of it i am not 100% certain how much you use though
We normally inhale 'air' which is mostly nitrogen (approx. 78%), oxygen, (approx. 21%) a little argon and other trace gasses, the lungs extract the oxygen which the body needs and we exhale the rest with a little waste carbon dioxide which was removed from the body by the lungs.
The lungs exchange carbon dioxide for oxygen. e.g. Expiration removes CO2; Inspiration brings O2. The lungs also expel nitrogen and other trace gases found in the air (such as argon). Some oxygen is also included as not all the oxygen you inhale is used by the body.
Why do we all inhale oxygen.. every single animal in the world needs oxygen. Fish too
Like all animals, they inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide.
Yes, all animals inhale oxygen. Parrots breathe through their nostrils as opposed to their mouths.
They inhale air. What they extract from the air is oxygen.
Animals do not use up all the oxygen in the atmosphere because plants produce oxygen. When they breathe, plants inhale carbon dioxide (which is what animals breathe out) and exhale oxygen (which is what animals breathe in).
It is oxygen
When you inhale you breath in oxygen
Yes humans inhale oxygen but exhale carbon dioxide.
The vast majority of living organisms, and almost all multicellular organisms inhale oxygen duringrespiration.The di-atomic gas oxygen [O2].air
Aerobic organisms inhale oxygen and exhale CO2 because they use a process called cellular respiration. This is why organisms breathe.
when lungs inhale oxygen what doesit exhale as waste
