  94. when the same antigen and antibody binds what happens? opposite?
    • your body will try to destroy the antigen
    • leaves it alone bc body doesn't recognize it

  102. people with blood type O have
    A and B antibodies in their plasma
  103. RH (+) means ? RH (-)?
    • have more than 1 RH agglutinogen
    • have NO agglutinogens

    • RH(+)
    • RH (-)
  105. fluid going through blood vessel aka the study of blood flow
  106. flow rate?
  107. the more viscous it was, the
    longer it took for the fluid to empty out of the L shaped tube
  108. if you double viscosity of blood, it will be reduced to
    50% of what is used to be (F= 1/2)
  109. when donating blood what happens to the antibodies?
    they are filtered out
