  • Lungs: Lung Volumes and Lung Capacity
    TITLE ! Investigation to determine whether or not relationships exist between gender or height with lung capacity of Year 9 students ! ! ! INTRODUCTION The capacity of our lungs is the volume of air our lungs can hold. Our lungs have a greater capacity than we use when we take a normal breath. Scientists use various terms to describe the different components of lung capacity. Tidal Volume is the amount of air breathed out in a single normal breath (inhalation and exhalation)....

  • Cigarette Smoke and Diseases of the Lungs
    Diseases of the Lungs When you breathe, your lungs take in oxygen from the air and deliver it to the bloodstream. The cells in your body need oxygen to work and grow. During a normal day, you breathe nearly 25,000 times. People with lung disease have difficulty breathing. There are numerous things that affect the lungs in a negative way. Smoking is a major contributor to these issues and it helps in no way. It destroys the lungs and intensifies any existing problem. Diseases of the Lungs...

  • Pulmonary Ventilation or Breathing The way the lungs work
    Pulmonary Ventilation or breathing has two phases. Inspiration or inhalation moves air into the lungs, and expiration or exhalation moves are out of the lungs. The lungs are enclosed within the thoracic cavity. Thus changes in the shape and size of the thoracic cavity result in changes in the air pressure within that cavity & in the lungs. This difference in air pressure causes the movement of air into and out of the lungs. Air moves from an area where pressure is high to an area where pressure...

    Lung Capacity I. Introduction. The chest contains two lungs, one lung on the right side of the chest, the other on the left side of the chest. Each lung is made up of sections called lobes. The lungs are soft and protected by the ribcage. The purpose of the lungs is to bring oxygen into the body and to remove carbon dioxide. Oxygen is a gas that provides us with energy, while carbon dioxide is a waste product or “exhaust” of the body. | To deliver oxygen to the body, air is breathed in...

    Abstract Six people were used to measure their inhaling and exhaling volumes. A spirometer was used to “record the volume of all air inhaled and exhaled by the subject” (book. 875). The six people did four breathing techniques to find their tidal volume, expiratory reserve volume, inspiratory reserve volume and vital capacity. Then calculations were done to find out the MRV, RV and percent predicted VC. Comparing all of the 6 people’s results showed how your health affects your lung capacity....

  • Respiratory Rate and Tidal Wave Volume
    Respiratory Rate and Tidal Volume [pic] The total amount of air moved in and out of the lungs each minute (pulmonary ventilation) depends upon 2 factors: size of each breath (tidal volume) and number of breaths/minute (respiratory rate). For example, suppose your tidal volume is 500 mL (0.5 liters) and you breathe 15 times/minute. Your pulmonary ventilation = 15 breaths/min x 0.5 L/breath = 7.5 L/min. Pulmonary Ventilation = (Respiratory rate; breaths per minute) x Pulmonary...
