Textbook Problem

Blood pressure is normally measured with the cuff of the sphygmomanometer around the arm. Suppose the blood pressure is measured with the cuff around the calf of the leg of a standing person. Would the reading of the blood pressure be (a) the same here as it is for the arm, (b) greater than it is for the arm, or (c) less than it is for the arm?

To determine
The reading of the blood pressure measured with the cuff around the calf of the leg of a standing person.

Explanation

The pressure at a depth of fluids would increase such that P=Patm+ρgh .

Assume that the vascular system of the body as a vessel of blood and taking the measurement of blood pressure measured with the cuff around the calf of the leg of a standing person is equal to the measurement of pressure at the bottom of the vessel contains blood
