1. Describe the components in the blood that affect viscosity. 2. Explain the effect that the viscosity change had on flow rate. How well did the results compare with your prediction? 3. Describe the graph of flow versus viscosity. 4. Discuss the effect that polycythemia would have on viscosity and on blood flow.

1. Which is more likely to occur, a change in blood vessel radius or a change in blood vessel length? Explain why. 2. Explain the effect that the change in blood vessel length had on flow rate. How well did the results compare with your prediction? 3. Explain why you think blood vessel radius can have a larger effect on the body than changes in blood vessel length (use the blood flow equation).
