Homework Help: Figuring Force For United of Pressure

  1. Nov 5, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Blood is pumped through the body with a pressure of 10kPa, a droplet weighs about 0.0012kg. If a vein were to be cut open and droplet of blood was pumped through the opening, how fast/far would it travel?

    2. Relevant equations

    F = ma

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I tried figuring out how to convert kPa to Newtons, which is utterly impossible. I'm not sure how to work around it if I'm working with kPa, psi, etc.
