WHAT ARE CAPPILARIES AND WHAT ARE THEIR FUNCTIONS?
Asked by | 28th Mar, 2008, 02:24: PM
Capillaries are tiny blood vessels connecting arteries to veins. These blood vessels carry oxygen and nutrients to individual cells.
The capillaries are very thin and highly branched. THis helps in diffusion of gases with all parts of the body as well as helps the supply of blood to every small part of the body.
