PE - blood velocities

HideShow resource information
defintion of blood velocities
the velocity of blood flow is related to the cross sectional area of the vessels it is passing through
1 of 5
does blood flow fast or slow threw the smallest o cross sectioal areas
fast
2 of 5
what are the smallest blood vessels --- what does having so many of them have an affect on
capillaries --- cross sectional area
3 of 5
s blood flow fast or slow in the capillaries --- why is this an advantage
slow --- enough time for efficient gas exchange
4 of 5
what is velocity
it is the inverse relation of cross sectional area of the blood vessels to be filled
