Alveolor pressure

Post by anatimbit1111 » Sat May 30, 2015 12:29 am

During inspiration, how does an increase of volume in the thorax result in an increase of volume in the alveoli (to eventually cause a decrease of alveolar pressure ) ?

Basically, I don't understand how the lungs are physically attached/ connected to the alveoli and are able to regulate alveolar volume.


Any and all help would be appreciated, thanks in advance :)
