Haemoglobin is the more efficient buffering system. The ratio of the protonated to the unprotonated form of haemoglobin in the blood is 4.2:1.
More efficient buffering system
Let's write the equations as
The more efficient buffering system will be the one with
Both systems are good buffers, but the
Ratio of protonated to unprotonated forms
The ratio of the protonated to the unprotonated form of haemoglobin is 4.2:1.
