Homework Help: algebra

Posted by Sella on Saturday, August 11, 2012 at 8:08pm.

The velocity of a blood corpuscle in a vessel depends on how far the corpuscle is from the center of the vessel. Let R be the constant radius of the vessel; Vm, the constant maximum velocity of the corpuscle; r, the distance from the center to a particular blood corpuscle (variable); and Vr, the velocity of that corpuscle. The velocity Vr is related to the distance r by the equation Vr=Vm (1-r^2 /R^2). Find r when Vr=1/4Vm.
