How is oxygen carried in the blood and what influences the rate of loading and unloading of oxygen

Explain how carbon dioxide is transformed into bicarbonate and what purpose does bicarbonate serve


having trouble finding a well-worded answer to these questions.

O2 carried in blood by hemoglobin. The rate of loading and unloading is changed by metabolic activity. So the more metabolically active the tissue is, the more o2 is required.

Co2 is transformed into hco3 by reverse chemical reaction “co2+h2o=h2co3-H=hco3

Hco3 is a buffer agent that increases pH, the body uses it to compensate when the body reaches <7.35 ph. Co2 is an acid, hco3 is a base.
