# In a blood transfusion,blood flow from a battle at atmospheric pressure into a patient vein in which the pressure is 20mmHg higher than atmospheric.The bottle is 95cm higher than the vein and the needle into the vein has length of 3cm and diameter 0.45mm?

##
how much blood flow into the vein each minutes?

For blood #eta=0.004 pa.s# and #rho=1005 (kg)/m^3#

Ans: #3.4 cm^3#

how much blood flow into the vein each minutes?

For blood

##### 1 Answer

Hagen-Poiseuille equation can be written as

#ΔP = (128etaLQ) / (pid^4)# ......(1)

where#ΔP# is the pressure difference between two ends of pipe,#eta# is the dynamic viscosity of fluid,#L# is the length of pipe,#Q# is the volumetric flow rate of fluid and#d# is the internal diameter of the pipe.

Now

Using given data and

Using (1) and inserting values in SI units we get

#6700 = (128 xx 0.004 xx 0.03 xx Q) / (pi(0.00045)^4)#

#=>Q = 5.619xx10^-8\ m^3s^-1#

Therefore blood flow volume per minute

# V = Qxxt = 5.619xx10^-8xx 60#

# =>V= 3.372xx10^-6\ m^3#

# =>V= 3.4\ cm^3# , rounded to one decimal place.
