Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Hannah on Wednesday, June 20, 2012 at 11:56am.

Blood flows through a section of a horizontal artery that is partially blocked by a deposit along the artery wall. As a hemoglobin molecule moves from the narrow region into the wider region, its speed changes from v2 = 0.800 m/s to v1 = 0.422 m/s. What is the change in pressure, P1 - P2, that it experiences? The density of blood is 1060 kg/m3.

Would I start by dividing the two values for v?
