FL #1 C/P Question 53

Post by heatfan » Sun Jun 10, 2018 3:37 am

Hello,

The explanation states that the highest gc will be the last to detach. However, wouldn't it be the opposite? I read the passage and it says "Deflated vesicles detach and lift off from the substrate when the wall shear rate is higher than a minimum value, gc." So wouldn't a greater gc value result in the first detachment? Also, which one of the values represent the shear flow rate?

gc represents the minimum necessary shear rate for detachment to occur, meaning that detachment does not occur until the shear rate has risen to reach gc. Therefore, the highest gc would be the last to detach.
