1.
The pressure difference,
∆
P, across a partial
blockage
in
an
artery
(stenosis)
is
approximated by the equation:
Where V, is the blood velocity,
μ
the viscosity
(FL
2
T),
ρ
the blood density (ML
3
), D the
artery diameter, A
0
the area of the
unobstructed artery, and A
1
the area of the
stenosis. Determine the dimensions of the
constants K
v
and K
u
. Would this equation be
valid in any system of units?
Solution:
.
