Which respiratory volume is not a part of the vital capacity?



Option: 1

Tidal volume

Option: 2

Inspiratory reserve volume

Option: 3

Expiratory reserve volume


Option: 4

Residual volume

Answers (1)


Tidal volume, inspiratory reserve volume, and expiratory reserve volume are added together to form vital capacity. As the amount of air still in the lungs after being forced to exhale, residual volume does not count towards vital capacity.

 Option 4 is the correct answer.
