How are oxygen and carbon dioxide exchanged in our body during respiration?
When we breath in, the air sacs or alveoli get filled with air containing oxygen. The alveoli are surrounded by thin blood vessels called capillaries carrying blood in them. So, the oxygen of air diffuses out from the alveoli into the blood. Blood carries this oxygen to all the parts of the body. When it passes through the tissues, the oxygen in the blood diffuses into the cells and mixes with the digested food to release energy. Carbon dioxide produced during respiration in the cells diffuses into the blood which is carried to the lungs. Inside the lungs, the carbon dioxide diffuses into the alveoli.

A, Band Care three living organisms. The organism A is a unicellullar fungus which can live without air. It is used in the commercial production of an organic compound P from molasses. The organism B is a unicellular animal which lives in water and feeds and moves by using pseudopodia. It breathes through an organelle Q. The organism C is a tiny animal which acts as a carrier of malarial parasite. It breathes and respires through a kind of tiny holes Rand air-tubes Sin its body.
