Lung Capacity I. Introduction. The chest contains two lungs, one lung on the right side of the chest, the other on the left side of the chest. Each lung is made up of sections called lobes. The lungs are soft and protected by the ribcage. The purpose of the lungs is to bring oxygen into the body and to remove carbon dioxide. Oxygen is a gas that provides us with energy, while carbon dioxide is a waste product or “exhaust” of the body. |
To deliver oxygen to the body, air is breathed in through the nose, mouth or both.
Lung capacity is the volume of the most air you can exhale after fully breathing in. Based on that I will experiment with two kind of subjects in order to measure their lung capacity and get conclusions about the…show more content… Experiments involving body fluids must not be performed due to the risk of the transmission of blood-borne pathogens.

VII. Raw Data
I elaborated two tables based on the subjects who do exercise constantly and the subjects who don’t, I present those tables in table 1 (athletic people) and table 2 (people who doesn’t do exercise constantly)
TABLE 1: This table represents the lung capacity of people who do exercise constantly, their lung capacity was measured with the balloon who after that was introduce into the bucket and water was represented en ml in the table below. N | Lung Capacity /ml ∆LC= ±0,1 mL | | | 1 | 3827 | 2 | 3823 | 3 | 3836 | 4 | 3820 | 5 | 3813 | 6 | 3848 | 7 | 3843 |
TABLE 2: This table represents the lung capacity of people who don’t do exercise at all, their lung capacity was measured with the balloon who after that was introduce into the bucket and water was represented en ml in the table below.
N | Lung Capacity /ml ∆LC= ±0,1 mL | | | 1 | 3118 | 2 | 3082 | 3 | 3073 | 4 | 3093 | 5 | 3106 | 6 | 3060 | 7 | 3180 |
My observations are that it’s basically
