The following buffer us used by the body to correct either acidosis or alkalosis: H2O + CO2 H2CO3 HCO3 – + H + Therefore, if the Ph of the blood rises to 7.5, what change would occure to bring the pH back to normal? (Do not consider any other functions [such as the kidneys] when doing this problem. Only consider the bicarb buffer system.) a) a decrease in the concentrations of H2CO3 and a decrease in the concentration of HCO3 – b) an increase in the concentration of H2CO3 and the HCO3 – to act as a base c) an increase in the concentration of H2CO3 and the HCO3 – to act as an acid d) an increase in the concentration of HCO3 – and a decrease in the concentrations of H + e) an increase in the concentration of HCO3 – and the H2CO3 to act as an acid *Please explain why you chose the answer you did so I can try to understand the method behind it.
