NAME ____________________________________ 1. (10 points) A blood vessel runs from A to B. At B it splits into two smaller vessels, which rejoin at C. The resistance of the vessel from A to B is 12 , while the resistances of the two smaller vessels are 16 and 48 . The blood pressure at A is 6 mmHg and that at C is 30 mmHg. A. What is the blood flow through the 12 vessel? B. What is the blood pressure at B? C. What is the blood flow through the 16 vessel? 1/R = 1/(16 ) + 1/(48 ); so R = 12 A. Q = (24 mmHg)/(24 ) = 1 liter/min (4 points) B. P B = 6 mmHg + (1 l/min)x(12 ) = 18 mmHg (3 points) C. Q = (12 mmHg)/(16 ) = 3/4 liter/min (3 points) 2. (3 points) How does the L-type Ca 2+ channel of cardiac muscle differ from that of skeletal muscle? The Ca 2+ channel of skeletal muscle physically contacts the Ryanodine Receptor (RR), so that activation of the channel directly opens the RR.
