Winter 201713. Modeling the hydraulic conductivity of a capillaryIn lecture we discussed Starling’s Law, which related capillary filtration flow rate (Jtot) tothe effective pressure difference (both hydrostatic and osmotic) by means of the factor LpS. Togain a better understanding of what the hydraulic conductivity (Lp) physically represents, let’smodel the intercellular clefts as cylindrical pores (tubes) through which a laminar fluid passes.(A)Derive an equation for Lpassuming that the resistance through a single intercellular cleftis the same as the resistance to laminar flow through a pipe, and that there are N clefts.
