Unformatted text preview: , there is more (acid/base); therefore it favors the (forward/reverse) reaction and the formation of carbon dioxide gas (increases/decreases); thus the breathing rate (increases/decreases).

[CO 2 (g) ] [CO 2 (aq) ] [H 2 CO 3 (aq) ] pH 2. How would you bring it back to normal levels? Does the breathing rate affect the Keq? Why?...
