Expert Answer:

The pressure at which the blood is pumped around the body by the heart is called blood pressure. The maximum pressure at which the blood leaves the heart through the main artery during contraction phase, is called the systolic pressure.
The minimum pressure in the arteries during the relaxation phase of heart is called the diastolic pressure.
systolic pressure : 120 mm Hg and diastolic pressure : 80 mm Hg in a normal person.
