BEE 331, Bio-Fluid Mechanics HW #1 Summer’08 1. Your lab does research using blood samples. It collects these samples from three different hospitals, which unfortunately store their samples in different sized tubes. The first hospital stores blood in 0.5 fluid ounce tubes. The second hospital uses tubes that are 9 cm in length and half an inch in diameter. The third hospital uses tubes that are 10 mL in capacity. On average, each tube has 2 cm 3 of unfilled volume when passed on to your lab. Furthermore, 5% of the samples collected are contaminated and cannot be used. The probability distribution for different blood types is given in the chart below.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
