The thoracic aorta, heart and other great vessels.

Be prepared to see fluid mechanics concepts in the context of the cardiovascular system.

When you think about energy in fluid mechanics, the two laws you should have foremost in mind are Bernoulli's Law and Pouseuille's Law.

Berneoulli's Law describes the ideal case, conservation of energy in a fluid that flows without friction, a fluid with no viscosity, or internal friction.

Pouseuille's Law describes the dissipation of energy as a real fluid encounters the friction of the pipe.
