Atmospheric air is 21% oxygen.

But if you breathe in and exhale, the exhaled air is less than 21% O2, as you use some and exhale more CO2. Sorry but I have no idea of the percentage. Probably only a couple of percent reduction.


If you blow the balloon up from a compressor, 21%.

Thanks - maybe I'll compute using 21%...its one step closer than I was.

:D
