Question: normal dimensions of the human heart for live persons can...

Question details

Normal dimensions of the human heart for live persons can be determined non-invasively using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or two-dimensional echocardiography (2DE). During systole the left ventricular cavity has a diameter of approximately 34 mm and the wall thickness is approximately 16 mm. (20 points) A. If systolic pressure is 130 mm Hg, estimate the wall tension assuming that the wall stress is constant and that the ventricle is a sphere of the dimensions given B. Estimate the wall stress.
