37 Questions for Chapter 12: Fluid Dynamics and its Biological and Medical Applications

  1. Is there a limit to the height to which an entrainment device can raise a fluid? Explain your answer.

  2. The flow rate of blood through a \({\bf{2}}{\bf{.00 \times 1}}{{\bf{0}}^{{\bf{ - 6}}}}\;{\bf{m}}\)-radius capillary is \({\bf{3}}{\bf{.80 \times 1}}{{\bf{0}}^{\bf{9}}}\;{\bf{c}}{{\bf{m}}^{\bf{3}}}{\bf{/s}}\) . (a) What is the speed of the blood flow? (This small speed allows time for diffusion of materials to and from the blood.) (b) Assuming all the blood in the body passes through capillaries, how many of them must there be to carry a total flow of\({\bf{90}}\;{\bf{c}}{{\bf{m}}^{\bf{3}}}{\bf{/s}}\)? (The large number obtained is an overestimate, but it is still reasonable.)

  4. (a) What is the fluid speed in a fire hose with a 9.00-cm diameter carrying 80.0 L of water per second? (b) What is the flow rate in cubic meters per second? (c) Would your answers be different if salt water replaced the fresh water in the fire hose?

  5. Roofs are sometimes pushed off vertically during a tropical cyclone, and buildings sometimes explode outward when hit by a tornado. Use Bernoulli’s principle to explain these phenomena.

  6. The main uptake air duct of a forced air gas heater is 0.300 m in diameter. What is the average speed of air in the duct if it carries a volume equal to that of the house’s interior every 15 min? The inside volume of the house is equivalent to a rectangular solid 13.0 m wide by 20.0 m long by 2.75 m high.

  9. Water pressure inside a hose nozzle can be less than atmospheric pressure due to the Bernoulli effect. Explain in terms of energy how the water can emerge from the nozzle against the opposing atmospheric pressure.
