Viscous blood is flowing through an artery partially clogged by cholesterol. A surgeon wants to remove enough of the cholesterol to double the flow rate of blood through this artery.


If the original diameter of the artery is D , what should be the new diameter (in terms of D ) to accomplish this for the same pressure gradient?
