Hello everyone, our names are Eunice and Milena and we were studying the heart .
Our question was why is the heart placed where it is?
We found out that the heart is where it is because the ribs protect it and if there were no ribs there would be nothing to protect it.
The heart is where it is because since it’s in the middle it is easier to pump blood all around your body.
The heart is taking part in heat redistribution process. Because it is in the middle of the body, where most of the heat resides, it’s easier to move the heat through the blood.
Another thing we would like to learn about is the lungs and how the lungs connect with the heart.
