Problem 73E

Carbon monoxide replaces oxygen in oxygenated hemoglobin according to the reaction:

a.        Use the reactions and associated equilibrium constants at body temperature to fi nd the equilibrium constant for the reaction just shown.

b.        Suppose that an air mixture becomes polluted with carbon monoxide at a level of 0.10%. Assuming the air contains 20.0% oxygen, and that the oxygen and carbon monoxide ratios that dissolve in the blood are identical to the ratios in the air, what is the ratio of HbCO to HbO2 in the blood stream? Comment on the toxicity of carbon monoxide.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 73EStep 1The given chemical reactions ....................................(1)The equilibrium constant for the above reaction.(1)Given equilibrium constant for the above reaction. .........................................(2)The equilibrium constant for the above reaction (2)Step 2\nSo, the equilibrium constant for the associated reaction is 170.Step 3b)Step 4Step 5For equation 2 -- constant value 306For equation 3 --- constant value 18Substitute the values.Step 5\nStep 6</p>
