The average human has 8-12 pints in their body.
Blood makes up about 7% of your body's weight. The average adult has 10 pints of blood in his or her body. Oneunit of blood is roughly the equivalent of one pint. This propo…rtion is much greater in children, and slightly differentin men and women. Men, on average, have 8 to 10 pints, while women have 5 to 8 pints.That is just over a gallon or 4 - 5 liters for men and slightlyless for women. Larger people and populations can go much higher, up to 8-12 pintsdepending on the size of the person.
About 6 quarts
8-12 pints depending on the size of the person. Actually about 5 litre of blood is present in a normal human body It varies by age and weight, but the "standard" answer is 6 l…iters, or about a gallon and a half.
Average for an adult is 5 litres.
roughly about 7 liters in the average adult male or female.
Approximately 8 pints in an adult.
Typically 240ml at the peak of volume. . A healthy adult heart is usually just slightly larger than the size of the person's clenched fist and weighs between 7 to 15 ounces.… . There are four chambers in the heart that can hold blood. There are two atria and two ventricles. The atria receive blood and the ventricles pump it out of the heart. The atria are smaller than the ventricles, and don't really hold blood stored in them, since the atria are allowing blood to flow into the ventricles at the same time as blood is entering the heart by way of the atrial chambers. . At the end of the cycle of the atria filling the ventricles, the atria pump and create pressure in the ventricles to stretch them to hold the full load. That process also causes the valves to close between the atria and ventricles, so blood does not go backwards into the atria. The ventricles are each at that time holding a full load of blood under pressure. . So, when the ventricles are both full of blood (under pressure), the healthy heart is holding the maximum volume of blood. The typical healthy ventricle can hold approximately 120ml of blood at the end of that filling period. Therefore, the maximum blood in the heart at the peak of its volume is 240ml.. The heart is never completely empty of blood. After the ventricles push the blood on its way from the heart, some blood stays behind in the ventricles. This is the time of the lowest volume of blood in the ventricles during any point in the cardiac cycle. They each will still have approximately 50ml, making the minimum volume of blood in the heart approximately 100ml.. Additional notes about the circulatory system: . The healthy adult heart pumps about 5 quarts of blood every minute, or 1,800 gallons of blood every day. . When at rest, the heart will beat 60 to 100 beats per minute (bpm). This rhythmic, steady beating is called normal sinus rhythm. Within seconds, it can increase the number of bpms by over four times the normal sinus rhythm when needed during strenuous exercise.. The heart pumps all the blood in the body each minute when the body is at rest.. The average-weight adult (160 pounds) has just under 5 quarts of blood in their bodies. A child weighing approximately 80 pounds has about half that amount, or 2 1/2 quarts. An 8-pound infant has about 8.5 ounces of total blood volume.. Because of the lower oxygen content in the air in higher altitudes, people who live in mountainous areas typically have additional blood in their bodies (up to an additional 1.9 quarts) so their bodies can get the extra oxygen needed from the extra blood.. Our hearts beat about 100,000 times in one day and about 35 million times in a year. During the average lifetime, the human heart will beat more than 2.5 billion times. The heart pumps about 1 million barrels of blood during an average lifetime-that's enough to fill more than 3 super tankers.. The largest artery in the body is the Aorta and it is around the size of a garden hose. The smallest vessels in the body are the capillaries. It takes about ten capillaries to equal the thickness of a human hair.. The blood in our bodies travels a total of 12,000 miles in just a day. That is as far as going from coast to coast in the US four times.
The total blood volume in the average adult is approximately 60-65 ml/kilogram body weight. Children have approximately 70 ml/kilogram body weight and obese patients approxima…tely 55ml/kilogram body weight.. http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_much_blood_do_humans_have&action=edit .
Depending on how much fat you have most people are about 60-70% water.
about 2 gallons for adults
5 liters on average
Blood accounts for about 8% of the human body weight. The average adult has a blood volume of about 5 liters (1.3 gallons).
Depends on how big a person it is, a 2 meter overweight guy of a skinny midget makes a difference. But about 6 liter is average I believe
