The heart is one of the most vital organs in the body. It pumps out blood which provides nutrients and oxygen to all the other parts of the body. Then it pumps blood to lungs where the waste carbon dioxide is removed. It passes blood to the kidneys which removes other waste products in the body. It is like a pump. If there was no heart, it would have been impossible to transport blood from one part of the body to the other!

Contrary to its importance, the heart is not that large. In fact, the human heart is only about 5 inches in length. It weighs about 200 to 400 grams, depending on the age, weight and build of the person. Typically, an adult heart is about 300 grams.

If you want to find out what size your heart is, clench your fist. The sized of the heart is equal to the size of your curled fist. Try it!
