The pressure difference Δp across a partial blockage in an artery called a stenosis is approximated by the equation uploaded image Where V is the blood velocity μ the blood viscosity

The pressure difference, Δp, across a partial blockage in an artery (called a stenosis) is approximated by the equation:

uploaded image

Where V is the blood velocity, μ the blood viscosity {FT/L2}, ρ the blood density {M/L3}, D the
artery diameter, Ao the area of the unobstructed artery, and A1 the area of the stenosis.
Determine the dimensions of the constants Kv and Ku. Would this equation be valid in any
system of units?
