Problem 15.1: Blood flow through partially blocked artery
Please wait for the animation to completely load.
Blood flows in an artery with a partial blockage as shown in the animation (position is given in centimeters and time is given in seconds). Assume the blood can be treated as an ideal fluid. A blood platelet is shown moving through the artery. Which of the animations properly represents the motion of the platelet as it moves through and past the blockage? Explain. Restart.
