Vital Capacity of Lung Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Vital_Capacity_of_Lung = Tidal Volume+Inspiratory Reserve Volume+Expiratory Reserve Volume
VC = TV+IRV+ERV
This formula uses 3 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)
Expiratory Reserve Volume - Expiratory Reserve Volume is the volume of air that can be exhaled forcibly after exhalation of normal tidal volume. The normal adult value is 700-1200ml. (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)
Expiratory Reserve Volume: 12 Milliliter --> 1.2E-05 Cubic Meter (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
VC = TV+IRV+ERV --> 1E-05+1E-05+1.2E-05
Evaluating ... ...
VC = 3.2E-05
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
3.2E-05 Cubic Meter -->32 Milliliter (Check conversion here)
FINAL ANSWER
32 Milliliter <-- Vital Capacity of Lung
(Calculation completed in 00.016 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 litres of air.

How to Calculate Vital Capacity of Lung?

Vital Capacity of Lung calculator uses Vital_Capacity_of_Lung = Tidal Volume+Inspiratory Reserve Volume+Expiratory Reserve Volume to calculate the Vital Capacity of Lung, The Vital Capacity of Lung formula is defined as the total amount of air exhaled after maximal inhalation. The value is about 4800mL and it varies according to age and body size. Vital Capacity of Lung is denoted by VC symbol.

How to calculate Vital Capacity of Lung using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Vital Capacity of Lung, enter Tidal Volume (TV), Inspiratory Reserve Volume (IRV) & Expiratory Reserve Volume (ERV) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Vital Capacity of Lung calculation can be explained with given input values -> 32 = 1E-05+1E-05+1.2E-05.

FAQ

What is Vital Capacity of Lung?
The Vital Capacity of Lung formula is defined as the total amount of air exhaled after maximal inhalation. The value is about 4800mL and it varies according to age and body size and is represented as VC = TV+IRV+ERV or Vital_Capacity_of_Lung = Tidal Volume+Inspiratory Reserve Volume+Expiratory 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 & Expiratory Reserve Volume is the volume of air that can be exhaled forcibly after exhalation of normal tidal volume. The normal adult value is 700-1200ml.
How to calculate Vital Capacity of Lung?
The Vital Capacity of Lung formula is defined as the total amount of air exhaled after maximal inhalation. The value is about 4800mL and it varies according to age and body size is calculated using Vital_Capacity_of_Lung = Tidal Volume+Inspiratory Reserve Volume+Expiratory Reserve Volume. To calculate Vital Capacity of Lung, you need Tidal Volume (TV), Inspiratory Reserve Volume (IRV) & Expiratory Reserve Volume (ERV). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Tidal Volume, Inspiratory Reserve Volume & Expiratory 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 Vital Capacity of Lung?
In this formula, Vital Capacity of Lung uses Tidal Volume, Inspiratory Reserve Volume & Expiratory 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
