Asked by Jason

A bunch of seeds was put in a large underground hole. After a sometime, only the seeds on the outside germinated while the seeds at the centre of the hole did not terminate. Why is that so?

The germination of seeds requires optimum temperature, oxygen and water availability. It is likely that when seeds are put in a large underground there is low oxygen availability for the seeds at the centre of the hole compared to those seeds that are on outside. As a result due to the lack of ideal conditions the seeds at the centre remain dormant and are hence unable to germinate.

State any two differences between inhaled and exhaled air

Inhaled air will contain roughly the same composition of normal atmospheric air. Where as, exhaled air will contain much less oxygen and a high concentration of CO2 because of respiration taking place inside the human body.

Asked by Jahmiwh

Give three features of a alveoli That allows large amount of oxygen to enter the blood

Large surface area - many alveoli are present in the lungs with a shape that further increases surface area. Thin walls - alveolar walls are one cell thick providing gases with a short diffusion distance. Moist walls - gases dissolve in the moisture helping them to pass across the gas exchange surface. Permeable walls - allow gases to pass through. Extensive blood supply - ensuring oxygen rich blo... more
