Example text

In the region of fully developed flow, the pressure gradient dP/dx is constant. On the other hand, the pressure gradient in the entrance region varies with the position x, as shown in the plot in Fig. 11. The slope of the plot is the pressure gradient. 1 Reynolds number Osborne Reynolds was a British engineer, born in 1842 in Belfast. ” The paper was a landmark contribution to the development of fluid mechanics and the crowning achievement in Reynolds’ career. He was the first professor of engineering at the University of Manchester, England.

9. 0030 Ns/m2 blood density ϭ 1060 kg/m3 mean velocity ϭ 8 cm/s (a) Is the flow laminar or turbulent? (b) Calculate, if possible, the shearing stress at the tube wall. (c) Calculate, if possible, the maximum velocity in the tube. 10. Arterial blood pressure is frequently measured by inserting a catheter into the artery. Estimate the maximum error (expressed in mmHg) that may exist in this measurement due to the possible creation of a stagnation point at the catheter tip. Assume the density of blood to be 1060 kg/m3 and the peak velocity to be 110 cm/s.

The cellular membranes of myocardial cells are electrically polarized in the resting state like any other cells in the body. The resting, transmural electrical potential difference, is approximately Ϫ90 mV in ventricular cells. 5 41 Transmembrane resting potential in a cardiac cell. of the cell is negative with respect to the outside. This transmembrane potential exists because the cell membrane is selectively permeable to charged particles. 5 shows the transmembrane resting potential in a cardiac cell.
