How does the matter that makes up the fat of your fat cells ultimately leave your body--following weight loss?
I'd like to get some clarification on specifically how the matter from the fat reserves of the Adipocyte physically leaves the body. In other words, if you were to somehow follow every atom in the ...
I will be beginning a science project about sustaining life on space stations. I already know that pure oxygen is harmful for humans but would $O_2$ + $CO_2$ be enough for humans to breathe in or do ...
When food is scarce, the body slows its metabolism. Are there any other systems or processes that encourage prioritization of organs?
Could someone please explain the following process to me: This process refers to carbon cycling in lakes and is described in the context of $CO_2$ flux from lakes into the atmosphere. GPP is gross ...
In my respiratory physiology lectures, my professor explained that hypoxia-induced hyperventilation occurs in 2 stages when people try to acclimate at high altitudes. My question is about the ...
When we breathe, our lungs absorb a portion of the oxygen in the air, and replace it with some amount of carbon dioxide and water vapor. Typically, how much $O_2$ (in grams, milliliters, or moles for ...
Do dogs have something different about their physiology that allows them to pant without hyperventilating?
I was wondering this as I considered how effective panting would be for humans as a means of cooling.
