# Problem: The approximate diameter of the aorta is 0.50 cm; that of a capillary is 10 μm. The approximate average blood flow speed is 1.0 m/s in the aorta and 1.0 cm/s in the capillaries. If all the blood in the aorta eventually flows through the capillaries, estimate the number of capillaries in the circulatory system.
