Two colleges teamed-up last Friday to discuss blood pressure–the College of Nursing and the Ira A. Fulton College of Engineering and Technology.
Dr. Rollin Hotchkiss requested the assistance of several nursing students to support his Hydraulics & Fluid Flow Theory class lecture (CE EN 332). He was discussing the mechanics of hypertension and its mathematical formulas and wanted his students to have their blood pressure checked. They could then take their data and verify if the equations he presented were accurate.
Can you follow the lecture and determine if his equation is accurate?
