1. Huffing and Puffing to Understand Slope or Smoke and You Croak Lenny VerMaas, ESU 6

2. Smoke and You Croak • Handouts—will come at the end • There is one sheet that will be completed during the activity. A clean sheet is in the handouts. Electronic copies of the handouts are on my web page.

3. Think AboutHow much air will your lung hold? How could we measure that volume?

4. What will affect your lung capacity?

5. Scientific Vocabulary • inspiratory reserve volume • vital volume • expiratory reserve volume • residual volume • vital capacity • total lung capacity • For exact definitions visit your friendly science teacher.

6. Picture of lung capacity

7. Learning Vocabulary • consider special strategies to help students learn the terms • circle, circumference, radius, diameter, sphere, locus of points, directly proportional, and inversely proportional

8. How can the volume of a person’s lung be measured? • Accurately using a spirometer • Approximation—water displacement or blowing up a balloon. • Estimate the Volume of Your Lung • Think of a 2 liter pop bottle.

9. Here is the MATH

10. A Worked Out Example

11. Cubic centimeters to liters

12. Here We Go • Take a balloon and with one breath blow as much air as possible into the balloon. • Measure and record the circumference of the balloon. • Keeping the air in the balloon add another breath and measure and record the circumference. • Add one more breath, measure and record the circumference.

13. Fill out the chart

14. Measure the circumference after one breath.

15. Concentrate and Measure

16. Measure Circumference After 2nd Breath

17. Measure the circumference after the third breath

18. How Big Can Your Balloon Go?

19. What to do if your balloon looks like this?

20. Cir-cumference Vol. in liter Diameter in cm Radius in cm Plotting Your Data

21. Time to Collect Data

22. Circumference vs diameter Radius vs volume

23. Save Your Balloon For Some More Fun • Attach a straw and see how far and fast it will travel down a string. • Where can the straw be attached for maximum speed and distance. • Does the length of the straw make a difference. • Blow up the balloon, release the balloon, measure the time in the air, plot circumference vs time in air.

24. Blow up the Balloon

25. Attach Straw Carefully to Balloon • See how far and how fast it will travel down a string.

26. Down the String • Measure the time and distance. Use this data to calculate the speed
