How does oxygen move in and out of the cell?

Answers (1)
    • Diffusion is the transport of the gasses from the region of higher concentration to the region of lower concentration.

    • The gases that are to be transported in and out of the cell are oxygen and carbon dioxide. Oxygen is required to generate energy by cellular respiration and carbon dioxide is the product of cellular respiration.

    • Thus, the concentration of CO2 increases inside the cell and that of O2 decreases.

    • When the concentration of CO2 becomes more inside the cell as compared to outside, it voluntarily moves out of the cell.

    • At the same time, the concentration of O2 decreases inside the cell and it is been more outside the cell causing the voluntary movement of O2 inside the cell. This is how the diffusion of gases takes place.
