Extra Questions 4 The power of a heart which beats 72 times in a minute is 1.2kW. Calculate the work done by heart for each beat. Power of the heart = 1.2 kW = 1.2 ร 1000 W = 1200 W Time taken = 1 minute = 60 seconds We know that Power = (๐๐๐๐ ๐๐๐๐)/(๐๐๐๐ ๐ก๐๐๐๐) Work done = Power ร Time = 1200 ร 60 = 72000 J Now, Work done to beat 72 times = 72000 J Work done to beat 1 times = 72000/72 = 1000 J = 1000/1000 kJ = 1 kJ Work done to produce 1 heart beat is 1 kJ
