The following data describe the binding of oxygen to human myoglobin at 37oC.

P02 (mm Hg) = 0.5 1 2 3 4

Theta = .161 .277 .434 .535 .605

P02 (mm Hg) = 6 8 12 20

Theta = .697 .754 .821 .885

From these data, estimate:

a). P50

b) the fraction saturation of myoglobin at 30 mm, the partial pressure of O2 in venous blood.

I don’t know how to start and go about solving this problem.

Should I use this formula to calculate P50? Y=[S]^n / [S]^n + [S50]^n

Some please help. The following data describe the binding of oxygen to human myoglobin at 37oC.

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. but instead of just labeling this HELP, please label it math, chem, or whatever the subject matter is. Most of us are looking for certain areas to read.

your numbers make no sense, what are they estimated to be?
