  • Electrical Activity Of The Heart And Heart

    Lab Objective: The purpose of part one of this experiment is to illustrate the relationship between the electrical activity of the heart and the sounds the heart creates. This experiment also analyzes a subject’s physical fitness by measuring the amount of time a subject requires to return to resting level heart rate. Hypothesis: When recording the electrocardiogram for each subject, we expect to see normal sinus rhythm between P wave, QRS waves, and T waves. P waves should be succeeded by QRS waves and then finally T waves. We expect to see the P waves have the lowest amplitude, R waves the highest amplitude, and T waves amplitude lies in-between the two. Secondly, the second heart sound, or “dub”, will last longer than the first heart…
