Unformatted text preview: KIN 205: Chapter 14, Cardiovascular Physiology: B.1 Pressure (P), Volume (V), Flow (Q) and Resistance (R): •Q is proportional to ∆P (DP in Figure); • where ∆P = P1 – P2 •in a system with resistance, such as the cardiovascular system, pressure drops along the same direction as the flow. •Resistance opposes flow: •(similar to ohm's law V = I·R for electric currents) ∆P = Q·R •or •Q = ∆P / R ...
