Unformatted text preview: how this carrying capacity is affected by various conditions such as pH and oxygen binding to hemoglobin. III. Sample Problems: 1. If the affinity of hemoglobin for oxygen increases, which way does this move the oxygen dissociation curve - right or left? 2. What effect does increasing the pH have on oxygen dissociation and why is this adaptive? 3. What effect would blocking RBC carbonic anhydrase have on carbon dioxide carrying capacity and what is the underlying physiology explaining your answer? 4. What would the oxygen dissociation curve look like for a molecule having a single oxygen binding site? file:///C|/WINWORD/COURSES/31107/Lec29-07.htm8/15/2007 10:24:08 AM...
