The left side of the heart creates a pressure of 120 mm Hg by exerting a force directly on the blood over an effective area of 15.0 cm2 . What force does it exert to accomplish this?
We are required to calculate the force exerted by the left side of the heart on the blood.
Step 1 of 2
The pressure created by the heart mm of Hg
760 mm of Hg atm
120 mm of Hg atm
We have, 1 atm N/m2
So, atm N/m2
