Constraints on R, [R.sub.min] [less than or equal to] R [less than or equal to] [R.sub.max] may indicate the study is to be performed only for nonturbulent, laminar flows or certain types of turbulent flows.
However, Poiseuille's equation only applies to fluids with a constant viscosity regardless of the fluid velocity (known as Newtonian fluids), with nonturbulent flow and a no-slip boundary condition (i.e., the fluid immediately adjacent to the tubing wall is stationary).
In the present case the flow regime is basically nonturbulent, low Reynolds number flow.
