When a person is given intravenous fluid, the bag containing the fluid is typically held about 1.2 m above the person's body. If the pressure in this fluid is just barely able to push the fluid into the person, what is the pressure in the person's blood? (The density of the intravenous fluid is approximately that of water.)

    pressure=height*density*g
    =1.2m*1000kg/m^3 * 9.8N/kg
    = 1.2*1 *9.8 kPa
