Abstract: We consider the situation where we have two smooth n-manifolds $ N \subseteq M$ with $ {H_\ast }(M,N) = 0$ and show that given a smooth embedding of N into some manifold Q we may, under suitable conditions, extend this to embeddings of M into Q, $ Q \times I$, or $ Q \times {I^2}$ (where I is the unit interval). We can apply these results to obtain smooth embeddings of homologically k-connected manifolds into $ (2n - k + 1)$-dimensional euclidian space.
