In a inflexible tube, the rate of the person debris of liquid varies when it comes to its distance from the tube axis. lower than general situations, a laminar move prevails within the arteries, the blood flowing parallel to the vascular wall in coaxial cylindrical layers. the rate is said the following as v. The circulate fee, I, stands for the ratio of the amount of liquid, V, flowing via a go portion of a tube to the time, t, required for this, or additionally for the manufactured from move speed v and the go component to the tube q: 1= Llv: Llt and that i = v x q.
