That depends - it varies from individual to individual. The amount of blood pumped per minute (cardiac output) is calculated by taking the heart rate and multiplying by the amount of blood ejected from the heart per beat (stroke volume). Normal heart rate is between 60-100 for an adult and stroke volume is in the neighborhood of 70-120ml usually.
