Suppose that blood flows through the aorta with a speed of 0.35 m/s. The cross-sectional area of the aorta is 2.0x10-4 m2. (a) Find the volume flow rate of the blood (b) The aorta branches into tens of thousands of capillaries whose total cross-sectional area is about 0.28 m2 .What is the average blood speed through them ?
