Question
A glucose solution being administered with an IV has a flow rate of $3.00 \textrm{ cm}^3 \textrm{/min}$. What will the new flow rate be if the glucose is replaced by whole blood having the same density but a viscosity 2.50 times that of the glucose? All other factors remain constant.

$1.60 \textrm{ cm}^3\textrm{min}$
