Unformatted text preview: the equilibrium constant for the above reaction. (i) Hb (aq) + O 2 (aq) ↔ HbO 2 (aq) Kc = 1.8 (ii) Hb (aq) + CO (aq) ↔ HbCO (aq) Kc = 306 (b) Suppose that an air mixture become polluted with carbon monoxide at a level of 0.10%. Assuming the air contains 20.0% oxygen, and that the oxygen and carbon monoxide ratios that dissolve in the blood are identical to the ratios in the air, what would be the ratio of HbCO to HbO 2 in the bloodstream?...
