Viscosity of Blood Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Viscosity_of_blood = (Density of Blood*Diameter*Mean Velocity of Blood)/Reynolds Number
μ = (ρ*d*v)/Re
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Density of Blood - The Density of Blood is defined as mass per unit volume of blood. (Measured in Kilogram per Meter³)
Diameter - Diameter is a straight line passing from side to side through the center of a body or figure, especially a circle or sphere. (Measured in Meter)
Mean Velocity of Blood - Mean Velocity of Blood is the mean rate of blood flow through a given vessel. Blood flow is the volume of blood flowing through a particular vessel in given interval of time. (Measured in Centimeter³ per Minute)
Reynolds Number- The Reynolds number is the ratio of inertial forces to viscous forces within a fluid which is subjected to relative internal movement due to different fluid velocities. A region where these forces change behavior is known as a boundary layer, such as the bounding surface in the interior of a pipe.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Density of Blood: 10 Kilogram per Meter³ --> 10 Kilogram per Meter³ No Conversion Required
Diameter: 10 Meter --> 10 Meter No Conversion Required
Mean Velocity of Blood: 10 Centimeter³ per Minute --> 1.66666666666667E-07 Meter³ per Second (Check conversion here)
Reynolds Number: 5000 --> No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
μ = (ρ*d*v)/Re --> (10*10*1.66666666666667E-07)/5000
Evaluating ... ...
μ = 3.33333333333334E-09
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
3.33333333333334E-09 Pascal Second -->3.33333333333334E-06 Centipoise (Check conversion here)
3.33333333333334E-06 Centipoise <-- Viscosity of Blood

What is Hemodynamics?

Hemodynamics or haemodynamics are the dynamics of blood flow. The circulatory system is controlled by homeostatic mechanisms of autoregulation, just as hydraulic circuits are controlled by control systems. The hemodynamic response continuously monitors and adjusts to conditions in the body and its environment. Hemodynamics explains the physical laws that govern the flow of blood in the blood vessels.
