Submerged submarines contain tanks filled with water. To ri se to
the surface, compressed air is used to force the water out of the
tanks. Explain why thi s works. Fish can adjust their buoyancy with
an organ cal led the swim biaddeJ: The swim bladder is a flexible
gas- filled sac; the fish can increase or decrease the amount of
gas in the swim bladder so that it stays neutrally buoyant-neither
sinking nor floating. Suppose the fi sh is neutra lly buoyant at
some depth and then goes deeper. What needs to happen to the volume
of air in the swim bladder? Will the fish need to add or remove gas
from the swim bladder to maintain its neu tral buoyancy? Figure

Smoking tobacco is bad for your c irculatory health. In an BIO
attempt to maintain the blood's capacity to deliver oxygen,
body increases its red blood cell production, and thi s increases
the viscosity of the blood. In addition, nicotine from tobacco
causes arteries to constrict.
For a nonsmoker, with blood viscos ity of 2.S X 10-3 Pa· s, normal
blood flow requires a pressure difference of 8.0 mm Hg between the
two ends of an artery. If thi s person were to smoke regularly, hi
s blood viscos ity would increase to 2.7 X 10- 3 Pa· s, and the
arterial diameter would constrict to 90% of it s normal value. What
pressure difference would be needed to maintain the same blood

Blood Pressure and Blood Flow BID
The blood pressure at your heart is approximately 100 mm Hg. As
blood is pumped from the left ventri cle of your heart, it flows
through the aorta, a single large blood vessel with a diameter of
about 2.5 cm. The speed of blood flow in the aorta is about 60
cm/s. Any change in pressure as blood flows in the aorta is due to
the change in height: the

Stop to Think 13.3: B. The weight of the displaced water equals the
weight of the ice cube. When the ice cube melts and turns into
water, that amount of water will exactl y filJ the volume that the
ice cube is now displacing.
Stop to Think 13.4: 1 cmJjs out. The fluid is incompressible, so
the sum of what flow s in must match the sum of what flow s out. 13

vesse l is large enough that viscoLi s drag is not a major factor.
As the blood moves through the circulatory system, it flows into
succes sive ly smaller and smaller blood vessels until it reaches
the capillaries. Blood flows in the capillari es at the much lower
speed of approxi mately 0.7 mm/s. The diameter of capillaries and
other small blood vessels is so small that viscous drag is a major

were too long, no blood would reach your brain! What is the maximum

66. I Because the flow speed in your capillaries is much less than
in the aorta, the total cross-section area of the capillaries con
sidered together must be much larger than that of the aorta. Given
the flow speeds noted , the total area of the capillaries
considered together is equi valent to the cross-sec tion area of a

68. I Sustained exerc ise can increase the blood flow rate of the
heart by a factor of 5 with only a modest increase in blood pres
sure. This is a large change in fl ow. Although several factors
come into play, which of the follo wing physiological changes would
most plausibly account for such a large increase in fl ow with a
small change in pressure? A. A decrease in the viscos ity of the
blood B. Dilation of the smaller blood vessels to larger diameters
C. Dilation of the aorta to larger diameter D. An increase in the
oxygen carried by the blood

is higher where the pressure is lower. The pressure is lower where
the flow speed is higher. The flow speed is highest in the
