minute. If the diameter of the aorta were reduced by 30%, what increase in blood pressure gradient would

be needed to obtain the normal flow rate? (Assume that Poiseuille’s law applies.)

a. The pressure gradient would have to increase by a factor of 3.3.

b. The pressure gradient would have to increase by a factor of 1.4.

c. The pressure gradient would have to increase by a factor of 4.2.

d. The pressure gradient would have to increase by a factor of 123.

e. The pressure gradient would have to increase by a factor of 2.

Notes: I honestly don't even know where to start? Do I just take 30% off 5?
