How do the gas laws (Daltons, Boyles and Henrys)apply to the respiratory processes?
I will be happy to critique your thinking on this.
I know Dalton's Law is the law of partial pressures, Boyle's law is the law for a fixed mass of ideal gas at fixed temperature, the product of pressure and volume is a constant.
And Henry's Law the law where the amount of a given gas dissolved in a volume of liquid is directly proportional to the partial pressure of that gas in equilibrium with that liquid at constant temperature. But I can't find information that relates to the respiratory system!
