TRIPLE SCIENCE: Blood Vessels/The blood

HideShow resource information
Explain how muscular and elastic walls of arteries are related to the function of the blood vessel.
Arteries carry blood away from the heart at high pressures so they need to be strong and able to stretch and spring back.
1 of 7
Explain how valves in veins are related to the function of the blood vessel.
Veins carry blood back to the heart at low pressures. Valves prevent the blood flowing back in the wrong direction.
2 of 7
Do arteries of veins have thicker walls?
Arteries.
3 of 7
List things carried by plasma (8 things).
Red blood cells, White blood cells, glucose, carbon dioxide, platelets, antibodies, amino acids, urea.
4 of 7
Urea travels from where to where.
From liver to kidneys.
5 of 7
Carbon dioxide travels from where to where.
From cells/organs to the lungs.
6 of 7
Glucose travels from where to where.
From the gut/small intestine to cells/organs.
