Hi guys this is my first post on here, and I like the look of it so far. I've tried to look everywhere for an approprate equation for this question but I cant come up with one, or maybe Im overlooking something.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the minimum power (W) required to pump blood in the human body? Assume a total average pressure rise across the heart of 120 mm Hg.

Given: 80 beats per minute, stroke volume of 70ml, volumetric output is 336 liters per hour.

Thanks,

Ben
