Calculate your vital capacity and total lung capacity if your pulmonary ventilation volumes were as follows: tidal volume-500 ml; inspiratory reserve volume-3200 ml; expiratory reserve volume-1100 ml; and residual volume-1150 ml.
Step 11 of 2
Vital capacity is the total of tidal volume, inspiratory reserve volume and expiratory reseve volume: VC = 500 + 3200 + 1100 = 4800ml Total lung capacity is the total of tidal volume, inspiratory reserve volume, expiratory reserve volume and residual volume: TLC = 500 + 3200 + 1100 + 1150 = 5950ml.

A physics book slides off a horizontal tabletop with a speed of 1.10 m/s. It strikes the floor in 0.480 s. Ignore air resistance. Find (a) the height of the tabletop above the floor; (b) the horizontal distance from the edge of the table to the point where the book strikes the floor; (c) the horizontal and vertical components of the book’s velocity, and the magnitude and direction of its velocity, just before the book reaches the floor. (d) Draw x - t, y - t, , and graphs for the motion.
