Textbook Question
Chapter 1, Problem 8P

Suppose that two nondimensional quantities are exactly A = 8.67 and B = 1.429. Using the rules for significant figures as stated in this chapter, express the four quantities ( A + B ) , ( A B ) , ( A B ) , and ( A / B ) .

In medical work, pressures are often measured in units of mm of H2O because body fluids, including the cerebrospinal fluid, typically have nearly the same density as water. The pressure of the cerebrospinal fluid can be measured by means of a spinal tap. A hollow tube is inserted into the spinal column, and the height to which the fluid rises is observed. If the fluid rises to a height of 160 mm, we write its gauge pressure as 160 mm H2O.  a)  Sometimes it is necessary to determine whether an accident victim has suffered a crushed vertebra that is blocking the flow of cerebrospinal fluid in the spinal column. In other cases, a physician may suspect that a tumor or other growth is locking the spinal column and inhibiting the flow of cerebrospinal fluid. Such conditions can be investigated by means of the Queckensted test. In this procedure the veins in the patient’s neck are compressed, to make the blood pressure rise in the brain. The increase in pressure in the blood vessels is…
2.22- What is the gage pressure within a d = 2.0 mm spherical droplet of water? 2.23- Water is at 20 °C and the pressure is lowered until boiling is observed. What is the pressure? from Engineering fluid mechanics 11th
