Biology

For any given age and body surface area, men have a greater MVV than women. Give one anatomic or physiologic reason why.

Is it because men tend to be more stronger and athletic than women, thus allowing respiratory muscles to be stronger

Men are larger than women, thus more respiratory volume is needed to sustain that mass. It takes work (ie respiration leads to energy consumption) to support that mass.
