Hello Girls 

In  this blog we will be recapping all the work which we did on respiration and breathing as well as answering any questions which you may need clarification on. I am posting a series of questions which you may attempt. You do not need to answer the questions in chronological order, choose any you may want to answer. However, please indicate the number for the question which you are answering. I will be replying directly to your comments!

Any question can be answered more than once. If you see that a colleague has already answered a question which you would like to answer reply directly her comment. For example if Stacy answers question 1 and you would like to do the same reply to the comment which Stacy has posted, this will make it easier to have discussions. 


1. What is the difference between breathing and respiration?
2. What is the equation for respiration? Can you give a brief explanation for this equation?
3. What are the parts of the respiratory system? Give the function of each! (No one person has to state all the parts and functions you can do maybe 1 or 2 and leave some for your colleagues)
4. What happens during inhalation?
5. What happens during exhalation?
6. What effect does exercise have on the respiratory system? (long term/ short term) 
    (REFER TO THE POWERPOINT OR WEBSITE OR DO SOME RESEARCH)
7. What is an oxygen debt?
8. How is an oxygen debt formed in th

One difference between respiration and breathing is that respiration is a chemical reaction and breathing is not a chemical reaction..?

respiration is the gaseous exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide and breathing is the mechanical process of taking in oxygen ;)

The equation for respiration is Glucose+oxygen --> water+carbon dioxide+energy :D

A part of the respiratory system is the nasal passage and its function is to filter warm and moist air and to detect smells/odours. Also, the trachea or windpipe allows for air to pass freely to and from the lungs.

bronchus- carry air into the alveoli. alveoli- gaseous axchange of O2 & CO2 occurs.

No, she's right. The outer part is the epidermis and the inner is the dermis. There was a mistake in the note we got.
