2.2 Supplies Oxygen To The Blood
2.3 Gets Rid Of Carbon Dioxide And Other Waste Gasses
2.4 Inspiration And Expiration
2.5 Inside the cell, cellular respiration generates energy
3 Exchange Of Gasses
3.1 Internal
3.1.1 The Alveoli in the lungs have a high level of oxygen Blood In Capillaries Have a low level of oxygen
3.2 External
3.2.1 The blood in capillaries has a high level of carbon dioxide There is a low level of carbon dioxide in the alveoli of the lungs
