    Residual Volume of Lungs Air

    The residual volume of air in the lungs
    a.is the amount expelled on a normal expiration
    b.remains until the chest cavity is opnened
    c.is also called the minimal air volume
    d. is the amount forcefully exhaled
    e.is also known as the complemental air

    We know that it's not a or c, but a different question was what major air volume is left in the lungs after forcibly exhaling and we came up with residual volume so I think we are a little confused on terminology. Thanks!
