Unformatted text preview: ? Also, calculate K A if the sugar rings are inextensible and then repeat this if they can be deformed as well ( hint: you will need to derive a new K A for a rectangular network where all the links are soft using the node-to-node length of the filament, L, and k sp for each dissimilar element ). Design Problem: The total peripheral resistance in the systemic circulation is equal to the (mean arterial pressure – vena cava pressure)/cardiac output, or Q (the volumetric flow rate) and can be written as R t = P/Q. This quantity is an important estimate of a patient’s cardiovascular health. Design a non-invasive means of measuring R t , including a explanation of the measurement technique (including units), the approximations/assumptions, and the possible errors in the measurement. 4nm...
