Solutions of Biology Objective Short Answer Type Theoretical Questions - TQ 3 (Q. No. 61-67)
Solution-61: Transport of oxygen: Haemoglobin is a red coloured pigment present in RBC. O2 can bind with Hb in a reversible manner to form oxyhaemoglobin. This transport 97% to 99% oxygen as oxyhaemoglobin.
Solution-62: Volume of air, which expired forcefully after forceful inspiration.
Vital capacity = IRV+ERV+TV
= 4600 ml.
Solution-63: This percentage of CO2 diffuse in RBC and dissolve in water of cytoplasm to form carbonic acid. Formation of carbonic acid is occurring in presence of carbonic anhydrase enzyme, which increase rate of formation of carbonic acid 5000 times. It is present in RBC.
Solution-65: Nearly 20-25% of CO2 is transported by RBCs whereas 70% of it is carried as bicarbonate. About 7% of CO2 is carried in a dissolved state through plasma. HCO3- ions (bicarbonate ions).
Solution-66: Strong neural signal from this center to inspiratory area increased the rate of breathing because inspiration and expiration is shortened.
Solution-67: (i) By wearing protective masks. (ii) By avoiding prolonged exposure to harmful substances.
