Transcript of Respiratory System and the Excretory System

The respiratory system is made up of organs in your body that help you to breath. Another word for respiratory is breathing. The respiratory system controls breathing. Exchanges gases in lungs and tissues.
The Respiratory and Excretory system.
The excretory and respiratory system do, in fact, work together. The excretory system is in charge of excreting waste products. For example, carbon-dioxide is a waste product which the lungs, a part of the respiratory system, excrete.
What is the Excretory System?
The Excretory System removes liquid, solid, and gas wastes from the body. It is the system of an organism's body that performs the function of excretion, the bodily process of discharging wastes.
What is the respiratory system?
The Larynx
The larynx or also known as your voice box, it contains your vocal chords, which vibrate as air passes through them, producing the sounds of your voice. Then the air goes into the air way passage called
the trachea.
Right lung and Left lung
For air to flow into the lungs there must be a difference in the air pressure in the lungs and the pressure outside. Air is made up of tiny particles including oxygen. For example, if these particles are held together, in a bottle for example, they push on the sides of the bottle. This ‘push’ is what is known as pressure. If the size of the bottle and the amount of air in it stay the same, the pressure in the bottle will stay the same. But the pressure in the bottle can change. If the size of the bottle increases without allowing more air in, the pressure in the bottle goes down.
The Trachea
Air goes into the airway passage called the trachea. (You can feel your trachea by gently rubbing your hand up and down your neck.) The bumps you feel are C-shaped bands of cartilage that maintain the tubular shape of the trachea and are similar to the ridges of a vacuum hose.
The Bladder
The bladder is a muscular, stretchy, sac-like organ which is used for temporary storage use of urine until you urinate.
The Urethra
The Urethra is basically the final step in the urinary process. It is a tube that connects the urinary bladder to the outside of the body.
7 parts of the Respiratory and Excretion system.

* The kidney, ureters, bladder, and urethra are the main organs involved in excretion. *
The Kidneys
The Ureters
By: Chantel and Lily
What are the kidneys and what do they do?
There are 2 bean shaped kidneys in the system, both about the size of a fist. They are located just under the ribcage. Each day, both kidneys filter about 120-150 quarts of blood to produce 1-2 quarts of urine, composed of wastes and extra fluid. This organ is mainly involved with the Excretion system.
what is the urethra?
what is the bladder?
How do the lungs and breathing work?
The ureters are two tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder. Urine flows down partly by gravity, but mainly by waves of contractions.
How do the circulatory and the respiratory system work together?
The Circulatory System
These two systems work together by using the respiratory system to make oxygen and then using the circulatory system uses it to oxygenate the blood, the system then uses it to supply the body with blood.
