Study the spirograph and identify the correctly matched volumes from the codes given:
TV IRV ERV RV VITAL CAPACITY
1. A c B D E
2. A B C D E
3. B A C D E
4. C B A D E
Lungs are made up of air-filled sacs, the alveoli. They do not collapse even after forceful expiration, because of
1. Residual Volume (RV)
2. Inspiratory Reserve Volume (IRV)
3. Tidal Volume (TV)
4. Expiratory Reserve Volume (ERV)
What is vital capacity of our lungs?
1. Inspiratory reserve volume plus tidal volume
2. Total lung capacity minus expiratory reserve volume
3. Inspiratory reserve volume plus expiratory reserve volume
4. Total lung capacity minus residual volume
The volume of 'anatomical dead space’ air is normally
(1) 230 mL
(2) 210 mL
(3) 190 mL
(4) 150 mL.
Assertion : Vital capacity is higher in athletes than non-athletes.
Reason : Vital capacity is about 3.5-4.5 litres in a normal adult person.
