Homework Help: Biochemistry

Posted by Andrew on Sunday, October 11, 2009 at 1:51pm.

The pH of arterial blood is 7.42. When 10 mL of the blood is acidified, 5.91 mL of CO2 is produced.

1) what is the total concentration of CO2 in the blood [CO2]+[HCO3-]? The experimental value for the volume of one mole of CO2 is 22.26 L/mol.

2) What are the individual concentrations of CO2 and HCO3-?

I have no idea what the first question is asking.

Thanks in advance!
