Where is blood viscosity highest?
correct me if I am wrong:
as the diameter of a tube dicreases, visosity increases:
so Answer is : Vasa Recta
I'm thinking this too: In the vasa recta, quite a bit of fluid has been filtered out, with protein remaining in the blood. High protein and low fluid leads to high viscosity.
As to me, viscosity is a property of fluid itself and shouldn't have any dependancy on vessel's diameter.
Various fluids will only react differently in different diameters...
But still not sure about the answer
I will repost it in NBDEAnswers and see what those guys think!
agree w you guys
