Question

What is the residual capacity of the lungs


Solution

Functional Residual Capacity (FRC) is the volume of air present in the lungs  at the end of passive expiration. At FRC, the opposing elastic recoil forces of the lungs and chest wall are in equilibrium and there is no exertion by the diaphragm or other respiratory muscles.
