why do we only take oxygen inside y not CO2
Asked by shaurya2 | 25th Apr, 2010, 03:32: PM
This oxygen diffuses from the blood capillaries into the tissues, which are deficient in oxygen.
The blood surrounding the alveoli have a much higher concentration of carbon dioxide whereas the alveolar air has low carbon dioxide concentration due to which carbon dioxide diffuses from the surrounding blood capillaries in to the alveoli.
