NCERT Solutions for Class 7th Science Chapter 10 : Respiration in Organism

Exercises

1. Why does an athlete breathe faster and deeper than usual after finishing the race?

Answer

During the run, the demand of energy is high but the supply of oxygen to produce energy is limited. Therefore, anaerobic respiration takes places in the muscle cells to fulfill the demand of energy. After finishing the race, an athlete breathe faster and deeper than usual so that more oxygen is supplied to the cells.

2. List the similarities and differences between aerobic and anaerobic respiration.

Answer

Similarity:
(i) In both aerobic and anaerobic respiration, food is broken down to release energy.
(ii) Both takes place inside cells.
(iii) Both produces byproducts.

Differences:

Aerobic Respiration Anaerobic Respiration
(i) It takes place in the presence of oxygen. (i) It takes place in the absence of oxygen.
(ii) Energy is released in higher amount. (ii) Energy is released in lesser amount.
(iii) Carbon dioxide and water are produced as byproducts. (iii) Carbon dioxide and water are produced as byproducts.
(iv) It is a slow process. (iv) It is a fast process.
(v) Examples: Animals and plants cells. (iv) Examples: Human cells, yeast, Bacteria etc.

3. Why do we often sneeze when we inhale a lot of dust-laden air?

Answer

We often sneeze when we inhale a lot of dust-laden air to expel out these foreign particles. These particles get past the hair in the nasal cavity and  irritate the lining of the cavity which results in sneezing.

4. Take three test-tubes. Fill each of them with water. Label them A, B and C. Keep a snail in test-tube A, a water plant in test-tube B and in C, keep snail and plant both. Which test-tube would have the highest concentration of CO2 ?

Answer

Test-tube A will have the highest concentration of CO2 because snail will take in oxygen and gives out CO2.
In test-tubes B and C, the COwill be utilized by the water plant for synthesizing food and hence there will be less concentration of COin these.

5. Tick the correct answer:
(a) In cockroaches, air enters the body through
(i) lungs             (ii) gills              (iii) spiracles             (iv) skin
 (iii) spiracles

(b) During heavy exercise, we get cramps in the legs due to the accumulation of
(i) carbon dioxide              (ii) lactic acid                (iii) alcohol           (iv) water
✓ (ii) lactic acid

(c) Normal range of breathing rate per minute in an average adult person at rest is:
(i) 9 – 12               (ii) 15 – 18             (iii) 21 – 24               (iv) 30 – 33
 (ii) 15 – 18

(d) During exhalation, the ribs
(i) move outwards             (ii) move downwards          (iii) move upwards         (iv) do not move at all
 (ii) move downwards

6. Match the items in Column I with those in Column II:

Column I Column II
(a) Yeast (i) Earthworm
