- The amount of air that remains in the lungs after forcefully exhaling.

Ventilation → diaphragm relaxes & moves up into original dome shape. This decreases the chest volume & moves air out of the lungs
Respiratory System → Conducts air in and out of lungs, Humidifies air, Warms air, Filters air.
Inspiration → an active process in which the intercostal (rib) muscles and the diaphragm contract, expanding the size of the chest cavity and causing air to flow into the lungs
