    Under appropriate conditions, hemoglobin dissociates into its four subunits. The isolated alpha subunit binds oxygen, but the O2 saturation curve is hyperbolic rather than sigmoid. In addition the binding of oxygen to the isolated

    Measurements of oxygen binding by whole human blood, at 37oC, at pH 7.4, and in the presence of 40mm of CO2 and normal physiological levels of BPG (5 mmol/L of cells), give the following: PO2 (mm Hg) = 10.6, 19.5, 27.4, 37.5,

    the saturation point or the solubility of salt X in water is 27 g per 100 mL of solvent used. if a person adds 29 g of this salt to a 100 Ml of solvent what type of solution would form? shouldnt the answer be supersaturated? since
