Name the Dependent Variable. respiratory rate and arterial blood levels of pH, pCO2, and HCO3â## 2. Name the Independent Variable. acid-base balance disorder 3. Name the Controlled Variables. gender, age 4. Explain why HCO3- levels can be calculated from pH and pCO2 levels. In acid base determinations HCO3â## can be calculated from pH and pCO2 because it is altered by both. 5. In this experiment, HCO3- concentrations are calculated using pH and pCO2 concentrations. Refer to the following chemical reaction to describe how changes in CO2 and H+ concentrations affect HCO3- concentration. As excess CO2 accumulates in the blood the reaction moves to the right and more H+ is produced to lower the pH. As H+ increases, more carbon dioxide will be present in the blood. Results Table 2.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
