One of the graphs below shows the rate of ﬂow, R, of blood from the heart in a
man who bicycles for twenty minutes, starting at t = 0 minutes. The other graph
shows the pressure, p, in the artery leading to a man’s lungs as a function of the
rate of ﬂow of blood from the heart.
• Estimate 𝑝(𝑅 10 ) and 𝑝(𝑅 22 ).
• 𝑝(𝑅 10 ) ≈ 𝑝(18) ≈ 23
• 𝑝(𝑅 22 ) ≈ 𝑝(10) ≈ 17
• Explain what 𝑝(𝑅 10 ) means in practical terms.
• After 10 minutes of bicycling, the pressure in the artery leading to
the man’s lungs is about 17 mm Hg.
