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. You are awaiting Blood Type Percentage (%) O Rh-positive 38 O Rh-negative 7 A Rh-positive 34 A Rh-negative 6 B Rh-positive 9 B Rh-negative 2 AB Rh-positive 3 AB Rh-negative 1 a. Research Team A is interested in only Rh -positive blood samples (O, A, B, and AB). If the same volume of blood must be collected from all three hospitals, how many
