The Larynx is a hollow muscular organ making an air passage to the lungs holding the vocal cords in humans. The bronchi is a large air passage, they get smaller the closer they are or get to the lung tissue. These passageways then turn into very small air sacs called alveoli, which are consisted of oxygen and carbon dioxide and exchange into the respiratory system. The right primary bronchus separates the left and right main bronchus. The left lung is how we breathe and hold oxygen to stay alive, it also has fewer lobes and segments than the right lung. It is also smaller than the right because it shares the side of the chest with the heart, and because it has fewer lobes.
