why left side of heart pumps blood harder then the right side?

asked by JANET
  1. It has to pump blood into your whole body.

    The left ventricle is the largest and strongest chamber in your heart. The left ventricle's chamber walls are only about a half-inch thick, but they have enough force to push blood through the aortic valve and into your body.
