A bag of blood with a density of 1050 kg/m3 is raised 1.37 m higher than the level of a patient’s arm. How much greater is the blood pressure at the patient’s arm than it would be if the bag were at the same height as the arm? Assume there is no change in drip speed at the different heights. The acceleration of gravity is 9.81 m/s2.Answer in units of Pa
