Surfactant improves airflow in several ways. First, it maintains airway stability by preventing airway film collapse of the airway walls. Second, surfactant modulates airway wall thickness and diameter by regulating liquid balance. In other words, the dysfunction of surfactant airways… Full Answer
Air resistance increases when the speed of an object increases until it reaches terminal velocity. At this point the object is going as fast as it can, and if all forces remain the same the friction will not get any… Full Answer
When a sympathetic response is triggered in the body the heart rate increases, and the strength of the contractions of the heart also increases. The airways dilate which increases airflow. Blood vessels constrict, and therefore blood pressure rises.
Fuel servos work the same for nearly all aircraft. They basically measure the airflow to generate a differential pressure on a set of diaphragms. The "differential" pressure is used to meter the fuel flow. As the airflow increases these baffles/diaphragms… Full Answer
Surfactants allow liquids to wet surfaces instead of beading up above the surface. ________________________________________________________________________________________________ In human physiology, surfactant is the material that lines the alveoli of the lung. It increases the efficiency of gas exchange, as the gasses can dissolve… Full Answer
Surfactant reduces the surface tension within in your lungs, your alveoli have a wet surface and if surfactant were not present they would stick together causing a difficulty in expanding your thoracic cavity-so you wouldn't be able to breath without… Full Answer
smoke decreases the amount of surfactant in your lung. surfactant is the fluid which decreases the surface tension in your lung, prevent it from collapsing and prevent them from edema. surfactant IS important!
I have never heard the surfactant called anything specific. Full term babies usually have surfactant (a mixture of lipids (fats) and proteins). Premature babies many times do not have enough surfactant to keep the alveoli of their lungs open, so… Full Answer
Presumably you mean surfactant and water? A classic surfactant molecule has a polar, hydrophilic end and a non-polar hydrocarbon liophilic end. With enough of a suitable surfactant, oil droplets will form with the liophilic part of surfactant molecules dissolved in… Full Answer
