The body establishes a pressure gradient for fluid flow due to the pressure difference between the two ends of the vessel.

Explain how the body established a pressure gradient for fluid flow

Describe the effect that radius changes have on the laminar flow of a fluid.

The larger the radius, the greater the laminar flow and vice versa. Since the vessel is larger, there's more room for the blood to move through, thus increasing laminar flow.
