It is known as stroke volume.

Stroke volume (SV) is the volume of blood pumped by the right/left ventricle of the heart in one contraction.

The stroke volume is not all of the blood contained in the left ventricle. The heart does not pump all the blood out of the ventricle. Normally, only about two-thirds of the blood in the ventricle is put out with each beat. What blood is actually pumped from the left ventricle is the stroke volume and it, together with the heart rate, determines the cardiac output.

What's the average amount of blood that is pumped from the right ventricle during a normal pulmonary circulation for a typical adult-?

The average amount for the right ventricle is about the same as the left ventricle which is about 5000 ml or 5 liters.

What is the relaxation part of the heartbeat called?

That part is called as diastole. Your heart is taking rest during this period.

What is the amount of blood ejected by the ventricle prior to the systole called?

Your answer is EDS - End Diastole Volume Keep in mind, there is a period of isovolumic contraction which is the first part of systole and during that phase no blood is actually ejected because the pressure in the ventricle hasn't exceeded the pressure in the aorta (I'm assuming we're talking about the left ventricle)

What is a graph illustrating the pressure and volume changes during one heartbeat called?

Cardiac Cycle

Why blood pressure varies in a ventricle during the cardiac cycle?

Its called contraction, the reason is the same as in a bicycle pump.

What is tension developed by the ventricle during systole called?

I looked it up in Wikipedia and I think you're looking for afterload.

What is the diastolic flow of blood from the aorta into left ventricle called?

Aortic insufficiency (AI), also known as aortic regurgitation (AR) is what is called when blood flows in the reverse direction during ventricular diastole, from the aorta into the left ventricle.

What happens to your artery when you feel a pulse?

During diastole, or the resting part of the heartbeat, there is a minimum amount of pressure on arteries. When the heart pumps (systole) it forces the blood out of the ventricle and into the artery. Arteries are elastic, so when this blood passes through it, it causes the artery to expand from the increased pressure. It is this expansion as the bolus of blood rushes forward that you feel in a pulse.

Where does the pulmonary valve lie between?

The right atrium and the left atrium. It actually lies between the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery, where it prevents the backflow of blood from the artery back into the heart during diastole (the resting period of the heartbeat)
