Difference between Inhalation and Exhalation?

Answer

The difference between the inhaled air (air that is breathed in) and exhaled air (air that is breathed out) is the composition of air. The inhaled air contains 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, 1% inert gas such as argon, 0.04% carbon dioxide and little water vapour. The exhaled air contains 78% nitrogen, 17% oxygen, 1% inert gas such as argon, 4% carbon dioxide and saturated with water vapour. The major difference can be seen in the composition of oxygen, carbon dioxide and water vapour.

Inhaled air is that which is absorbed into the body when you breathe in, while exhaled air is produced when you breathe out, both containing different levels of gases. Exhaled air is rich in carbon dioxide and contains little oxygen as it is used up by the body. Various experiments are used to confirm this.
