type 1: gas exchange, large, thing walled, 95% of alveoli
type II: secrete surfactant (reduce surface tension of water)
no muscles, aided by collagen and elastic fibres

CO2 more soluble in water than O2
veins have lower pO2 pressure than arteries
more O2 dissolved in RBC than plasma
amt of O2 bound to Hb depends on pO2 of plasma, #of O2 RBC
arterial pO2 depends on pO2 in alverolar air, O2 transport cpacity of blood, exch

Answer ALL the questions, and do the easy ones first. The weight of each question is
given in the table below.
A 6.6 kg mass, M1, is on a horizontal frictionless table. A horizontal string is attached to M1 and it passes over a pulley at the edge of the table to a 4.4 kg mass, M2, that is hanging down freely. Initially the two masses are held stationary and the
A 7 kg mass with an initial velocity of 10 i m/s collides and sticks to a 10 kg mass with an initial velocity of - 5 j m/s.
Find the direction of the final velocity of the two masses with respect to the direction of the x axis.

A record player is spinning at 32 rpm when the motor is switched off. After 6.7 seconds the angular speed has decreased to 28 rpm. Calculate the frictional torque if the record player can be treated as a solid wheel of mass 3.5 kg and radius 8 cm.
A person stands, hands at side, on a platform that is rotating at 1.02 rev/second. If the person now raises his arms to a horizontal position, the speed of rotation decreases to 0.72 rev/second. By what factor has the moment of inertia changed?

Consider the reaction represented by the equation
Previously we asked two questions regarding the reaction
1. How fast do A and B react to give C and D?
2. To what extent do A and B react?
The answer to the fi
