Problem

Which of the following is an INCORRECT statement relating to the behavior of gases?

A) When a gas is in contact with a liquid, the gas will dissolve the liquid in proportion to its partial pressure.

B) The volume of a gas and the pressure on it are directly proportional. As pressure increases, volume increases.

C) The lower the hemoglobin saturation with oxygen, the more carbon dioxide the blood can carry.

D) Each gas in a mixture diffuses down its own concentration gradient independent of other gases.

Solution

We are asked to determine the INCORRECT statement relating to the behavior of gases.

Let us discuss the choices individually.
