Answer:

Capillaries have many properties and I have listed some of them below.

Explanation:

  1. Capillaries are only one cell thick.So diffusion in and out of the substances in it is very easy.
  2. Capillaries are very thin. This is much thinner than an RBC has to squeeze past through it.
  3. Capillaries take blood to every small space in our body. As they are very small it is easy for them to do so.
  4. Capillaries help join the arterioles (a subdivision of arteries) with venules (a subdivision of veins).
  5. It is the smallest blood vessel and its main function is to transport blood in between the organs and around the organs.
