    Hey everyone,

    I'm having trouble with this diffusion gap fill exercise that we have been given for homework...

    I've done all of it except this sentence!

    'To maintain a steep diffusion gradient for oxygen involves bringing oxygen to an exchange surface (v...............) and constantly removing it from the surface after it has diffused across it (c..............).

    I think the first gap might be 'very thin, but I have no clue on the second one!

    Please help! Would appreciate it!

    I don't deny that it could be capillaries, but I think it's more likely to be circulation. It's not the capillaries that removes the oxygen from, it's the blood flowing through them. But that is me being quite picky
