Capillaries are narrow blood vessels, sometimes only 1 red blood cell at a time can pass through. Capillaries are found in the lungs and throughout the body, passing very close to body cells. What is occurring in the capillaries of the lungs? How is it the same or different then what is occurring the capillarities of the body?

The capillaries in the lungs are primarily involved in the elimination of urine-ous gas through ammonia exhalation while the capillaries of the systemic cells are associated with the elimination of fecal matter through circulation.

Just BS the rest of the homework based on that tidbit and logic - it'll go well
