12. A useful way to express FEV1 is as a percentage of the forced vital capacity (FVC). Using the FEV1 and FVC valuesfrom the data grid, calculate the FEV1 (%) by dividing the FEV1 volume by the FVC volume (in this case, the VC is equal tothe FVC) and multiply by 100%. Enter the FEV1 (%) for an airway radius of 3.00 mm in the field below and then click Submit Data to record your answer in the lab report.

What was the FEV1 (%) at the initial radius of 5.00 mm? 4. What happened to the FEV1 (%) as the radius of the airways decreased? How well did the results compare with yourprediction? 5. Explain why the results from the experiment suggest that there is an obstructive, rather than a restrictive, pulmonaryproblem.
