If you think about it the answers should be obvious. The heart is the source of the pumping so the pressure should be highest near the heart(when it's pumped out). Hopefully your teacher didn't expect you to do fluid models to calculate the pressure based on blood volume per vessel.

Also the lungs are the source of oxygen.

Yea - thinking about the flow of blood makes the answer obvious :)

I have the data of blood pressure in some vessels, I don't mind to tell you that here for references, but after eucaryotic tells us his/her answers of the homework :) Come on my dear, it is not a hard one, you can make it :wink:

Yes, come on. It is fairly easy if you put the prefront brain territory to work :wink: Besides, I want Dr.Stein's info as well...

I also wait for Dr. Stein's answer since I only know only some answers for those vessel questions..
Q: Why are chemists great for solving problems?
A: They have all the solutions.
