“Think Traits” Bolsters Immune System

Please follow the Presidential Guidelines to be safe and at the same time be hopeful, calm, at peace and know we all will come through this together. 😊Science shows that these "think" traits booster the immune system. https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings-statements/coronavirus-guidelines-america/ A positive attitude can improve your immune system and may help you live longer, according to a University of Queensland study. … Continue reading “Think Traits” Bolsters Immune System

Online Collaborations with Hands on Activities

If you are a teacher or parent or work with youth and looking to collaborate for online and hands on activities. We are helping! We have small hands on projects, that we can suggest, that takes regular classroom inventory that can be mailed at little cost. Example- teach motion with engineering activities- https://www.teachengineering.org/lessons/view/cub_catapult_lesson01 and build … Continue reading Online Collaborations with Hands on Activities

Blood Pressure and Velocity in relation to Bernoulli’s Principle and Pascal’s Law

What is Bernoulli’s Principle in relation to blood pressure and velocity? However, let's go back to the original question, keeping in mind that work imposed on the veins may originate with the work of the muscles (how blood actually gets circulated around the body) and that can lead to an explanation of why there tends to be a higher … Continue reading Blood Pressure and Velocity in relation to Bernoulli’s Principle and Pascal’s Law

Why do veins have higher velocity compared to capillaries? Are we saying fluids are moving fast?

Now you may be wondering, why blood in veins has a higher velocity as compared to capillaries.  That answer comes down to the work of the veins in comparison to the work of the capillaries.  When I say work, it is a type of force. Remember, force is the push or pull applied on an object. When force is … Continue reading Why do veins have higher velocity compared to capillaries? Are we saying fluids are moving fast?

Blood Pressure and Velocity; Why Blood Veins Do Not Have High Velocity = High Pressure or Low Velocity = Low Pressure

Courtesy of: https://www.healthdirect.gov.au/blood-and-blood-vessels I recently learned that the velocity of blood moving in veins is faster than that in capillaries, but the blood pressure in veins is much lower than that of any other blood vessel. Since veins have a relatively high blood velocity (at least compared to capillaries), shouldn't they also have a higher … Continue reading Blood Pressure and Velocity; Why Blood Veins Do Not Have High Velocity = High Pressure or Low Velocity = Low Pressure
