SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Capillaries have the lowest blood pressure. Capillaries have the lowest velocity. How are both of these true? Bernoulli's principle says the greater the velocity, the smaller the pressure. Does statement 1 only take into consideration the pressure in a single capillary, while statement 2 takes into consideration the overall velocity of blood, or the total flow rate? If not, how else can I account for this?
