Low concentration of oxygen in the blood and tissues of people living at high altitude is due to     

  • Option 1)

    Low temperature 

  • Option 2)

    Low atmospheric pressure

  • Option 3)

    High atmospheric pressure 

  • Option 4)

    Both low temperature and high atmospheric pressure 

 

Answers (1)

As learnt in

Relation between pressure and concentration -

PV=nRT

or\:P=\frac{n}{V}RT

or\:P=CRT

R=0.0831\:bar\:inter/mol\:K

- wherein

P is pressure in Pa. C is concentration in mol / litre. T is temperature in kelvin 

 

 At higher altitudes, the pressure decreases causing a lowering in concentration of oxygen in the blood as P =CRT

 


Option 1)

Low temperature 

Incorrect

Option 2)

Low atmospheric pressure

correct

Option 3)

High atmospheric pressure 

Incorrect

Option 4)

Both low temperature and high atmospheric pressure 

Incorrect
