In this worksheet, we will practice describing the processes by which waste products are removed from the human body.

  • AExcretion
  • BRespiration
  • CHomeostasis
  • DMitosis
  • EPositive feedback

Q2:

Which of the following correctly describes the correlation between the rate of respiration and carbon dioxide concentration?

  • AThe more cells respire, the lower the CO2 concentration in the blood.
  • BThe more cells respire, the higher the CO2 concentration in the blood.
  • CThere is no correlation between the rate of respiration and the CO2 concentration in the blood.

Q3:

Why must urea be removed from the body?

  • AIf urea remains in the body, it can inhibit cell division.
  • BIf urea is not removed, it can break down cell walls.
  • CIf too much urea builds up, it can be toxic.

Q5:

Urea is formed by the breakdown of what substance(s) in the body?

Q6:

A buildup of carbon dioxide in the blood can lower the blood’s pH. Why is it important that carbon dioxide is removed from the body?

  • AA decrease in pH can cause blockages in arteries.
  • BA decrease in blood pH has no effect on the body.
  • CA decrease in pH can change the structure of oxygen in the red blood cells.
  • DA decrease in pH can affect enzyme activity.
