It changes in the cells


The air enters our lungs, which is about 20% of the air, oxygen diffuses into the blood, and is transported by the red blood cells around your body, where it then diffuses into a cell where the cell respires, as all living things need to respire. and this creates the bi-product of CO2, which is diffused back into the blood and transported by red blood cells back into the lungs where you breathe it out.
