Transcribed Image Text: Do you think erythropoietin levels in athletes at
low altitude are lower, higher, or the same after
training at a high altitude for 2 months? Explain
your answer.
Calculate the average ml of oxygen molecules in
100 ml blood in the athletes at low altitude and
then in athletes in high altitude while training at
high altitude. Use the following information: 1.39
ml of oxygen per gram of hemoglobin.
Do athletes training at high altitudes have more
or less oxygen molecules per ml of blood then
athletes training at low altitudes? Explain why
this difference gives athletes who train at high
altitudes an advantage over athletes who train
only at low altitudes. Transcribed Image Text: Results
