Oxygen binds to haemoglobin at the lung surface and dissociates at the tissues. Justify.

Answer:

For the formation of oxyhaemoglobin, the factors required such as high pO2, low pCO2, low concentration of H+ ions and low temperature are maintained in the alveoli. Hence, the binding of oxygen with haemoglobin at lung surfaces is faster.

 

 

Low pO2, high pCO2, high H+ ion concentration and high temperature are the factors found in tissues which always favour the dissociation of oxygen.
