## Viscosity of Blood Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Viscosity of Blood = (Blood Density*Diameter of Artery*Mean Velocity of Blood)/Reynolds Number
μ = (ρblood*Dartery*v)/Re
This formula uses 5 Variables
Variables Used
Viscosity of Blood - (Measured in Pascal Second) - Viscosity of Blood is a measure of the resistance of blood to flow. It can also be described as the thickness and stickiness of blood.
Blood Density - (Measured in Kilogram per Cubic Meter) - The Blood Density is the mass per unit volume of blood.
Diameter of Artery - (Measured in Meter) - Diameter of Artery is a straight line passing from side to side through the center of a body or figure, especially a circle or sphere.
Mean Velocity of Blood - (Measured in Cubic Meter per Second) - 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.
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
Blood Density: 11 Kilogram per Cubic Meter --> 11 Kilogram per Cubic Meter No Conversion Required
Diameter of Artery: 10.55 Meter --> 10.55 Meter No Conversion Required
Mean Velocity of Blood: 15.65 Milliliter per Second --> 1.565E-05 Cubic Meter per Second (Check conversion here)
Reynolds Number: 5000 --> No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
μ = (ρblood*Dartery*v)/Re --> (11*10.55*1.565E-05)/5000
Evaluating ... ...
μ = 3.632365E-07
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
3.632365E-07 Pascal Second -->0.0003632365 Centipoise (Check conversion here)
0.0003632365 Centipoise <-- Viscosity of Blood

## Viscosity of Blood Formula

Viscosity of Blood = (Blood Density*Diameter of Artery*Mean Velocity of Blood)/Reynolds Number
μ = (ρblood*Dartery*v)/Re

## 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.
