somewhat . You correctly answered: constricted, dilated. 3 When you increased the flow tube radius, the fluid flow rate You correctly answered: increased. 4 Explain how the body establishes a pressure gradient for fluid flow. Your answer: By heart construction, the pressure gradient is established. 1 Explain the effect that the flow tube radius change had on flow rate. How well did the results compare with your prediction? Your answer: The flow tube radius increased the flow rate, as I predicted. 2 Describe the effect that radius changes have on the laminar flow of a fluid. Your answer: When radius increased, flow of a fluid get more free to flow than when radius is lower. The other way, when radius is narrow the flow of a fluid is restricted that rate as low. 3 Why do you think the plot was not linear? (Hint: look at the relationship of the variables in the equation). How well did the results compare with your prediction? Your answer: In graph, line is not straight, because radius and flow rate have not just simple proportion. Flow rate have proportion with the fourth power of radius. 4
