Question: a assume that the mass of a person is 70kg...

Question details

A: Assume that the mass of a person is 70kG and 8% of the body mass is blood. If the density of blood is 1.055g/mL, what is the blood volume? B: Assume that the hematocrit (the ratio of the volume of red blood cells to the total volume of blood) ratio is 0.45, what is the plasma volume of this person? C: Assume that the average life span of the red blood cell is 120 days. What volume of red blood cells is being destroyed each day? This corresponds to what volume of whole blood? D: Assume that the hemoglobin concentration in the whole blood is 16g%. How much hemoglobin is degraded each day? E: The molecular weight of hemoglobin is 66.6kg/mol and each hemoglobin binds four Fe atoms. How much iron is liberated from hemoglobin each day? Give the answer in mg/day and mol/day.
