why does left ventricle have the thickest walls compared to the other chambers?

Expert Answer:

Left ventricle has to push the oxygenated blood to all the parts of the body, including the extremities. Hence it requires great force to do this. For this purpose, the walls of the left ventricle are the thickest.
