Blood travels at three feet per second when it leaves the heart, but it slows down as it gets into smaller arteries and capillaries. It takes a minute to get around the body.
Heart pumps about 70 ml of blood out with each beat.70 beats a minute,So,about 4.9 litres of blood, which is almost your whole body’s worth of blood.So, in a minute, you will pump the entire blood volume around your body.
Five quarts of blood per minute are transported around the body.
There is roughly 5L of blood in the body, so we can say that a single cycle is when 5L of blood has passed completely through the body.
'average' resting blood pressure = 1/3 systolic + 2/3 diastolic = 1/3(115) + 2/3(75)
(this is because we can say that the heart beats 1/3 of the time and 2/3 of the time the arteries apply a force to move the blood)
Easy calculation #1:
resting heart rate is about 60bpm but walking is around 80bpm
(7,056 L/day)/(5L/Cycle) = 1,411 cycles per day
5,600 ml/min total blood flow (I don't know how they got that value)
5,600*(24 hours/day)*(60 min/hour)* (1/1000 L/ml)= 8,064 L per day
8,064/5 = 1,612 cycles per day
You may want to do some weighted average of resting and non-resting blood flow to come up with a better answer.
Poiseuille's Law ()
HOWEVER, our body is like a giant circuit so all resistors are additive. This means that it is possible that the diameter should be determined over the entire range of vessel diameters in the body
AGAIN, this estimation may be incorrect because the blood may not travel through all blood vessels before going back to the heart. I'm not sure what parts should be added in series or parallel.
Q = 3.14*(5*10^-4cm)^4*(120 mm Hg) / (8*(0.004 Pa.s)*(10^10cm))
Q = 7.36*10-20 cm^3/s ~ 10^-22 L/s
86400 sec/day * 10^-22 L/s = 8.64*10^-18 L per day
