Heart Attack!

Classical Mechanics Level 5

A human heart discharges \(75 \text{ ml} \) of blood during each beat against a pressure of \(0.1 \text{ mm } \) of mercury. Calculate the power of the heart assuming the following facts:

1.)Pulse Frequency: \(80\) beats per minute

2.)Density Of Mercury: \(13600 \text{ kg/m}^3 \)

3.)Acceleration due to gravity: \(9.8 \text{ m/s}^2 \)

Details and Assumptions:

Use the exact value of atmospheric pressure. Multiply your answer by \(100000\). Give your answer in Watts.
