Hi Joe,

Have you been taught Pouseille’s equation? According to this equation, blood flow is directly and very strongly related to

blood vessel radius and is inversely proportional to viscosity.

blood vessel radius and is inversely proportional to viscosity.

Blood flow = pi*ΔP*r^{4} / 8ηλ

In this equation, r represents the radius of the vessel and η represents viscosity.
