My Stupid Questions About CO2

These might be dumb questions to you guys but please follow along. I would like to learn some stuff. Please answer the questions as I go along, I'll continually ask a question relating to the previous.

When we breathe oxygen and exhale, whats the percentage of the air we breathe out is still oxygen and how much is CO2?

Scroll down to the subsection labeled "Composition of air."

...check wikipedia and google... everything you could ever possibly want to know is written somewhere, especially stuff like that.

I guess what I was trying to get at is trying to find a method of obtaining CO2 for our plants by breathing. Lots of thinking to do I guess.

Thanks though I keep forgetting about wiki

Do keep in mind that most of the air we exhale is still mostly oxygen, and only a small proportion of it is actually carbon dioxide.
