Homework Help: Biology

Under which condition can you hold your breath longer?

First breathe in as much as you can and hold your breath, and time it. (Lungs completely inflated)

After, breathe out as much as you can, hold your breath, and time it. (Maximal expiration).

Which condition can you hold your breath longer? Why?

It has been pointed out that maximal inhalation contains enough oxygen to supply the body for a long time. However, it is also noted that after maximal exhalation, there is decreased carbon dioxide in the blood.

That's why I'm confused, thanks!
