Question

What is Tidal volume? Find out the Tidal volume (approximate value) for a healthy human in an hour.

Solution

Tidal volume is the volume of air inspired or expired during normal respiration.

It is about 6000 to 8000 mL of air per minute.

The hourly tidal volume for a healthy human can be calculated as:

Tidal volume = 6000 to 8000 mL/minute

Tidal volume in an hour = 6000 to 8000 mL × (60 min)

= 3.6 × 105 mL to 4.8 × 105 mL

Therefore, the hourly tidal volume for a healthy human is approximately 3.6 × 105 mL to 4.8 × 105 mL

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
