Problem 22PE

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?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 22PE

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

N/m2

Therefore, N/m2

Area cm2

m2

Step 2 of 2
