    Discussion The results from the experiment demonstrate that respiratory frequency was higher and increased faster as exercise intensity increased in caffeinated individuals. The correlation between the independent (intensity of work rate) and dependent (respiratory frequency) variables for both the caffeinated and non-caffeinated groups was fairly good (R2 > 0.35) so there is some evidence that caffeine causes an increase in respiratory frequency. Tidal volume and alveolar ventilation were…

    transported? The two ways carbon dioxide is transported is through carbaminohemoglobin and bicarbonate. The carbamniohemoglobin transport is associated with oxygen and the binding of an amino acid. Moreover, the oxygen and the decreased saturation of the hemoglobin will cause the lungs to expel the carbon dioxide to be broken down to travel through the blood. This process will travel through the alveoli. This will cause the exhalation through the lungs. The bicarbonate transport is another…
