its the other way around the more acidic is the reduced hb [carboxy hb] as the carbon dioxide unit with water giving a weak carbonic acid immediatly dissolve to bicarbonate and proton CO2 + H2O → H2CO3 → HCO3 + H
is reduced Hb same as deoxyHb?
I guess because O has much ability to pull the clould of electron from hemoglobin,so it makes hemoglobin easy to pull pair of electron from others too I am trying to explain in chemistry's way but I forgot it much lol

You should read up on the Bohr Effect.
oxyhaemoglobin has a tendency to give up the oxygen to the cells and become acidic...... so it is more acidic than haemoglobin...Moreover the oxidation number is more in haemoglobin than haemoglobin . i think this is the reason. bt i'm not sure...
@blues , i read the Bohr effect. " increase pH make Hb to take up oxygen. Decrease pH make Hb to release oxygen." So does this mean reduced Hb is same as Hb without oxygen?
