Nervous system

  • What does the pipette, the water, and balloon represent in this model of the circulatory system?

  • The action of applying pressure to and releasing pressure from the pipette demonstrates what function of the circulatory system?

  • What is a limitation of using this model as opposed to the human body?

  • Place a bean in the balloon, what does the bean represent?

  • What would happen if you squeezed water through the pipette leaving the bean in the balloon, how would the experiment be different?

Nervous system

Reinforcement: this model of the circulatory system?

  • In your own words write the function for the circulatory system.

  • Rank the three main structures of the circulatory system and give the reason for your rankings.

  • While running outside you stop to rest at a park bench, what happens to your heart rate while you are resting on the bench?

  • Using the scenario above how would the heart rates be different if we compared the rates of a 300 lb. woman to a 140 lb. woman? Explain your answer.

Nervous system

S: A person visits a mountain so high that the air is very thin.

R:A person must increase the breathing rate to sustain normal oxygen levels.

Nervous system

Lung capacity
Lung Capacity this model of the circulatory system?

  • What are the independent and dependent variables used when finding lung capacity?

  • What type of graph would you create to show the collected data?

  • Put in your own words the meaning of lung capacity.

  • Why would it be important for someone to know there lung capacity?
