Question: The artery is 2/3 blocked. The normal speed is 0.40 m/s and blood density is 1060 kg/m^3. Find the velocity of the blood at the blocked area. Find the pressure difference between the normal and blocked area.

Solution Preview

To calculate the velocity: A1 v1 = A2 v2

In this case, A2 = (2/3) A1,

A1 v1 = (2/3) A1 v2
0.40 m/s ...

The static water pressure at point 1 in a pipe is 100 kPa, and the fluid velocity is 2 m/s. At point 2 downstream, the pipe narrows and the velocity increases to 3 m/s. What is the static pressure at that point? The usual assumptions concerning laminar flow, no friction losses, incompressibility, etc. all apply. This is in refer

The velocity v of blood that flows in a blood vessel with radius R and length l at a distance r from the central axis is
v(r)=(P/4(eta)l)(R^2-r^2)
where P is the pressure difference between the ends of the vessel and (eta) is the viscosity of the blood. Find the average velocity (with respect to r) over the interval 0 ≤

Water is flowing upward in the vertical duct as shown (in the figure in the attachment). The velocity at the inlet (station 1) is 100 ft/s, and the area ratio between station 1 and 2 is 0.6 (A2/A1 = 0.6). Two pressure taps, 10 ft apart, are connected to a differential manometer, as shown. The specif
