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!

Describe the mechanisms that permit the movement of each of the following substances into the cell: (a) water; (b) glucose; (c) oxygen; (d) protein.
