Unformatted text preview: o = 50 mL/sec. 2. Vessels act like circuits (as in the analogy from class; V = IR). Given that relationship and what you should know about the resistance of circuits in series or parallel, describe in mathematical terms how a blockage at point A would change the resistance in the simple arcade arteriole system to the right? Hint: you should compare both the unblocked and blocked cases as you present your answer as well as treating the internal resistance in each vessel (or branch) as R i . Design Problems: 1. Propose a circulatory tree (including both arterial and venule components, separating the twin sides with a dashed line) with similar branching ratios as discussed in class that mimics the arcade arteriole network discussed in the first lecture. P(t) Q(t) R K A...
