We learned this by seeing the “bottle lung” function and watching the video.
What is the function of the alveoli, and where are they located? Explain using evidence.
The alveoli are air sacs in the lungs at the end of the bronchioles. This is where the oxygen and carbon dioxide switch places. We saw pictures of the alveoli and a video that showed the air exchanging.
What gas do we inhale? What gase(s) do we exhale? Explain use evidence from class.
We inhale oxygen. We exhale carbon dioxide and water vapor. We saw the water vapor on the mirror when we exhaled. We saw different gasses going in and out of the body on the computer video.
What are cilia? How do they help your respiratory system?
