Collapsible plastic bags are used in hospitals for infusions. We want to use such a bag to infuse a electrolyte solution into the artery of a patient. For this we mount the bag at a height h above the arm of the patient. Assuming that the particular gauge pressure in the artery is 14.4 kPa and the density of the electrolyte solution is 1.03 g/cm3, what is the minimum height h in order for the infusion to work?
