Best Answer

For every minute that passes by a normal human adult takes 12 to 20 breathes. That is 720 to 1,200 breaths an hour, 17,280 to 28,800 a day, and 6,307,200 to 10,512,000 a year. To get an accurate answer you would have to calculate the about of breathes a person takes as an infant (25 to 50 breathes per minute) and also as a child (15 to 30 breathes per minute).
