Question #122382

Consider arterial blood viscosity µ = .0 025 poise. If the length of the artery is 1.5cm, radius 8*10^(-3) cm

P = P− P = 4×10^3dynes/cm^2 then find (i) maximum peak velocity of

blood and (ii) the shear stress at the wall.

P = P− P = 4×10^3dynes/cm^2 then find (i) maximum peak velocity of

blood and (ii) the shear stress at the wall.

Expert's answer

Assuming laminar flow of blood through the artery.

The maximum velocity is given by

The wall shear stress is given by
