We all know that we breathe Oxygen aka Air which has a composition as follows:
20.95% of Oxygen
0.04% of Carbon dioxide
Small Amounts Of Other Gases
After adding all up it makes Air which we breathe, what’s new in that? Here comes the new thing:
We have been told from our childhood that we breathe Air aka Oxygen and exhale Carbon Dioxide, but do you know – what’s the real deal here? The fact is what we exhale is only 4.4% of Carbon Dioxide! rest is all other gases being 16.4% of oxygen 4.4% carbon dioxide and other gases.
So as we now know that we only exhale 4.4% carbon dioxide out of 100% and rest 95.6% are other gases then why do we always say, that we exhale carbon dioxide??!
Look i also don’t really know why do we say and teach others in this same oldschool manner. However, i would like to ask to my readers (you) –
- What do you think about this? Do you know this fact before?
- If you know why do we say that we exhale carbon dioxide, although we only exhale it 4.4% out of 100, then why?
Comment Below If you know the answers!
