Video Assignment 3 1. Create a prototype to represent examples of a fully open and a partially clogged blood vessel. The fully open blood vessel has a diameter of 1 cm whereas the clogged blood vessel diameter is narrowed to 0.5 cm. If the length of the vessel segment under consideration is 1 cm long (assume the blockage is for the entire 1 cm section), determine the fluidic resistance for each case. Also, if the pressure drop across the segment is 5 Pa, estimate the total flow rate for each case. Viscosity of blood is 0.0012 Pa.s. A potential solution to a blocked vessel is a bypass. If you create a bypass (i.e.) add a vessel with diameter 0.5 cm and length of 1 cm in parallel, estimate the new fluidic resistance? Based on the new fluidic resistance, do you anticipate the flow rate to be restored?
