Calculate the Respiratory quotient. The values of O2 = 250 ml. CO2 = 200 ml.
Ans. B. 0.8
The respiratory quotient (RQ) measures the ratio of the volume of carbon dioxide (Vc) produced by an organism to the volume of oxygen consumed (Vo).
CO2 released = 200 ml.
Oxygen consumed = 250 ml
CO2 released / Oxygen consumed= 0.8
