Biology through Inquiry Teacher Guide

(PS-2870C)

Features 25 inquiry based labs covering the fundamental concepts of cell biology, ecology and physiology.

Exercise & Respiration Rate

Lab Summary

Use a breath rate sensor to measure the resting respiration rates of individuals and determine whether exercise causes a change in respiration rate.

Theory

Measure the resting respiration rates of individuals and determine whether exercise causes a change in respiration rate.

Method

Students gain experience conducting the following procedures:

  • Using a breath rate sensor, students measure respiration rate before, during, and after exercise.
  • Using analysis tools, students perform calculations on the data.

Sensors / Equipment Used:

PASPORT Breath Rate Sensor

(PS-2187)

Uses standard disposable dust mask to measure the breath rate by detecting pressure changes inside the mask. For use with PASPORT Interfaces.

The Associated Bundle:

Physiology Expansion Sensor Bundle

(PS-2935)

This expansion bundle contains the probeware needed to perform the 5 physiology activities in the Biology through Inquiry lab manual.

Interface Required

This experiment may require software and an interface for data collection.
