Through previous studies we have noticed that animals have different eating habits when exposed to differentiating temperatures. Therefore we decided to study mice to see if their breathing rates would change with temperature. While formulating the experiment we decided to document the changes in CO2 emissions that would be coming from the mice, which would indicate their metabolic rate.
