Inspiratory capacity of Lung Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Inspiratory_Capacity = Tidal Volume+Inspiratory Reserve Volume
IC = TV+IRV
This formula uses 2 Variables
Variables Used
Tidal Volume - Tidal Volume is the amount of air that moves in or out of the lungs with each respiratory cycle. (Measured in Milliliter)
Inspiratory Reserve Volume - Inspiratory Reserve Volume is the additional volume of air that can be inspired at the end of a normal or tidal inspiration. (Measured in Milliliter)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Tidal Volume: 10 Milliliter --> 1E-05 Cubic Meter (Check conversion here)
Inspiratory Reserve Volume: 10 Milliliter --> 1E-05 Cubic Meter (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
IC = TV+IRV --> 1E-05+1E-05
Evaluating ... ...
IC = 2E-05
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
2E-05 Cubic Meter -->20 Milliliter (Check conversion here)
FINAL ANSWER
20 Milliliter <-- Inspiratory Capacity
(Calculation completed in 00.017 seconds)

What is Lung Volume?

Lung volumes are also known as respiratory volumes. It refers to the volume of gas in the lungs at a given time during the respiratory cycle. Lung capacities are derived from a summation of different lung volumes. The average total lung capacity of an adult human male is about 6 litre of air. Lung volumes measurement is an integral part of pulmonary function test.

How to Calculate Inspiratory capacity of Lung?

Inspiratory capacity of Lung calculator uses Inspiratory_Capacity = Tidal Volume+Inspiratory Reserve Volume to calculate the Inspiratory Capacity, The Inspiratory capacity of Lung formula is defined as the maximum volume of air that can be inhaled following a resting state. It is calculated from the sum of inspiratory reserve volume and tidal volume. Inspiratory Capacity is denoted by IC symbol.

How to calculate Inspiratory capacity of Lung using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Inspiratory capacity of Lung, enter Tidal Volume (TV) & Inspiratory Reserve Volume (IRV) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Inspiratory capacity of Lung calculation can be explained with given input values -> 20 = 1E-05+1E-05.

FAQ

What is Inspiratory capacity of Lung?
The Inspiratory capacity of Lung formula is defined as the maximum volume of air that can be inhaled following a resting state. It is calculated from the sum of inspiratory reserve volume and tidal volume and is represented as IC = TV+IRV or Inspiratory_Capacity = Tidal Volume+Inspiratory Reserve Volume. Tidal Volume is the amount of air that moves in or out of the lungs with each respiratory cycle & Inspiratory Reserve Volume is the additional volume of air that can be inspired at the end of a normal or tidal inspiration.
How to calculate Inspiratory capacity of Lung?
The Inspiratory capacity of Lung formula is defined as the maximum volume of air that can be inhaled following a resting state. It is calculated from the sum of inspiratory reserve volume and tidal volume is calculated using Inspiratory_Capacity = Tidal Volume+Inspiratory Reserve Volume. To calculate Inspiratory capacity of Lung, you need Tidal Volume (TV) & Inspiratory Reserve Volume (IRV). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Tidal Volume & Inspiratory Reserve Volume and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
How many ways are there to calculate Inspiratory Capacity?
In this formula, Inspiratory Capacity uses Tidal Volume & Inspiratory Reserve Volume. We can use 4 other way(s) to calculate the same, which is/are as follows -
  • Inspiratory_Capacity = Tidal Volume+Inspiratory Reserve Volume
  • Vital_Capacity_of_Lung = Tidal Volume+Inspiratory Reserve Volume+Expiratory Reserve Volume
  • Total_Lung_Capacity = Inspiratory Reserve Volume+Tidal Volume+Expiratory Reserve Volume+Residual Volume of Lung
  • Function_Residual_Capacity = Residual Volume of Lung+Expiratory Reserve Volume
