Turbulence & Rheology, Dr. D. Penney

Self Assessment (continued..):

8) The Poiseuille equation assumes

a. streamline flow
b. rigid tubes
c. a Newtonian fluid
d. all of the above

9) The ratio of dynamic hematocrit to static hematocrit increases in tubes of diameter less than approximately 1 mm (T / F).

10) Cardiac output is inversely related to hematocrit ( T / F ).

12) Turbulent blood flow is more likely with a rough wall or sharp corners in a vessel ( T / F ).

13) The Reynolds number tells you for certain whether turbulence will be present ( T / F ).

14) The Reynolds equation is named for Sir Joshua Reynolds ( T / F ).
