CO2 + H2The following reactions are known to occur in the body (Q-1)  H2CO3

H2CO  The following reactions are known to occur in the body (Q-2)  H+  +  HCO3–

If CO2 escapes from the system

(A)     pH will decreases

(B)     Hydrogen ion concentration will diminish

(C)     H2CO3 concentration will remain unchanged

(D)     The forward reaction will be favoured

 

Best Answer

(B)

CO2   +   H2CO3  The following reactions are known to occur in the body (Sol.-1)  H+   +   HCO3-

If CO2 escapes concentration of H2CO3 will decrease

hence equilibrium shifted in backward direction

So  [H+]  ion will diminish
